(KMOV)—St. John’s Mercy Medical Center has found a new way to fight off the germs in patient rooms.
A new technology, vapor decontamination device called “Bioquell” can fight a wide range of viruses and decreases the risk of new infections.
This new technology can reduce the number of contaminated rooms from 25 percent down to 5 percent or less.
Doctors at St. John’s say that this new device does a better job at killing germs.
St. John’s is currently the third hospital in the country to use this new technology.
