Toronto: A new technique would not only disinfect hospitals worldwide but also stop bed bug outbreaks."This is the future, because many hospital deaths are preventable with better cleaning methods," said Dick Zoutman, researcher at the Queen`s University."It has been reported that more than 100,000 people in North America die every year due to hospital acquired infections at a cost of $30 billion. That`s 100,000 people every year who are dying from largely preventable infections," Zoutman added.The new technology involves pumping a ozone and hydrogen peroxide vapour gas mixture into a room to completely sterilize everything - including floors, walls, drapes, mattresses, chairs and other surfaces.
