Infection Control & Prevention
HANYS is committed to supporting New York state healthcare organizations across the care continuum as they advance efforts to protect their patients and communities from infections and prepare for requirements.
HANYS’ Infection Control and Prevention webpage is designed to equip members with current information and resources to conduct this very important work.
HANYS partners with Vyv
Vyv, headquartered in New York, is a health tech company and market leader in delivering a new kind of continuous antimicrobial protection. Vyv’s proprietary UV-free, continuous-use, antimicrobial LED technology creates environments inhospitable to organisms – viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeast, mold and mildew. Unlike UV-C light, Vyv meets international standards for continuous and unrestricted use around people. As high-quality white overhead LED lighting, Vyv is an easy replacement of existing and new ceiling fixtures to deliver continuous antimicrobial impact in all areas of healthcare facilities – from surgical suites and EDs to nursing stations and patient floors.
HANYS partners with PURPLESUN
PURPLESUN™ is a New York-based technology company that is transforming healthcare by creating the first non chemical-based standard for disinfection. They use evidence-based Focused Multivector Ultraviolet (FMUV), which is a unique and proprietary light technology that takes 90 seconds and does not require users to evacuate the room. These novel light-based products provide hospital members with the fastest, data-driven, sustainable solutions for infection prevention and decontamination strategies.
