Study Shows Proven Results

Beaufort Memorial Hospital reduced Hospital-Onset C. diff rates by 64%, improved high-touch object cleaning to >88%, reduced damage to hospital equipment, and improved room discharge time by 9 minutes as part of an overall environmental hygiene program implementing training and monitoring and use of OxyCide.

OxyCide Use Impact

Impact of OxyCide™ Use on Environmental Contamination and Infection Rates Compared to Standard Cleaning Practice

OxyCide™ was associated with decreased infection rates when compared to standard cleaning with quat and bleach.

“OxyCide™ enabled standardization of cleaning procedures across all units and departments, making cleaning and disinfecting simple and straightforward.”

– C. Chagai, Director of Hospitality Services in Clinton, IA (2019) 

In a study that compared bleach to OxyCide™:

“EVS staff stated that patients preferred the smell of the current room cleaner (OxyCide™) compared to bleach used previously.”

– Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology (2019), 40, 880-888

Ecolab OxyCide™ UV Patient Room

Can UV Disinfection Replace Manual Cleaning?

UV disinfecting systems are good supplements to manual environmental cleaning, but do not replace it. In addition, UV systems cannot be used when the patient is in the room, preventing daily use. However, the cleaning efficiencies and room turnover time savings gained through OxyCide™ Daily Disinfectant Cleaner enable EVS teams to deploy UV systems for supplemental disinfection.

What is Candida auris?

According to the CDC, C. auris is an emerging fungus that presents a serious global health threat. It is multi-drug resistant, difficult to identify and can spread through sick patients as well as on contaminated surfaces and equipment, putting hospitalized patients and hospital systems at risk for outbreaks.


What is Clostridium difficile?

It is a bacteria that has developed resistance to most commonly used antibiotics. When exposed to air it forms a spore that allows it to remain in the environment for long periods of time. It causes diarrhea and more serious intestinal conditions such as colitis. It is the most frequently identified cause of hospital-acquired diarrheal infection.


1/2 Million Illnesses Each Year Caused by C. difficile

The United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in collaboration with state health departments estimate that C. difficile causes almost half a million illnesses each year in the U.S. resulting in 29,300 deaths. About one quarter of these illnesses occurred in hospital settings.
