UKINNOVATION UK85 Healthcare MEDITROX/ STERITROX LTD To be adopted, these new systems need to be fast, effective, and extremely easy to operate and deploy. In summary, the unrelenting pressure on the infection-control community is starting to drive a more integrated approach to hospital infection control which takes into account both the patient and the hospital environment. Specifically, environmental decontamination needs to be integrated into the operating needs of the hospital, its staff and the patient. Routine whole room decontamination ( WRD) is about to become the latest strategic weapon in the fight to reduce hospital- acquired infections in UK hospitals. Mark Hamilton is currently Business Unit Director of Meditrox Ltd. Mark holds a First Class Hons in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and has over 20 years' experience in bringing new innovative technologies to market. Meditrox is an innovative UK technology company which specialises in environmental decontamination within medical markets.
