Hartsfield Village uses ultraviolet light robots to kill coronavirus, germs

Hartsfield Village in Munster is deploying high-tech robots that emit ultraviolet light to kill coronavirus, germs and bacteria.

The assisted living facility and nursing home that’s part of the Community Healthcare System is using hospital-grade infection control practices by deploying the Surfacide Helios system, which consists of three roving floor-to-ceiling disinfecting robots.

“After Hartsfield trialed the Surfacide UV-C equipment, we immediately decided to purchase the technology for routine use on our campus, primarily to assist in COVID-19 prevention,” said Leslie Darrow, vice president Post-Acute Care Services, Community Healthcare System. “This technology has been a very important factor in our tremendous success in protecting our community from the coronavirus and other viruses.”
