Hospital staff works to meet coronavirus challenges
November 26, 2020
"We recently increased the number of patient rooms that have air-disinfectant units, from four to eight, in our COVID unit here at Antelope Memorial Hospital," said Diane Carlin, AMH chief executive officer. "The units are used to destroy viruses to include COVID-19. Plus, four of the eight rooms have double patient capacities. If needed, this would allow us to care for up to 12 patients with the virus at a time."
Air disinfectant units take in air which is run through a HEPA filter and then passed over an ultraviolet light, destroying any viruses, added Carlin.
