AdventHealth elevates patient safety in ambulances with Aeroclave

Oct. 20, 2020

AdventHealth announced it has deployed expanded use of Aeroclave aerosol disinfectant in all of its ambulances. 

The Aeroclave aerosol disinfectant creates a fine, dry mist that covers the entire inside of the ambulance, providing decontamination for COVID-19 and other viruses after each patient is transported to a facility. AdventHealth West Florida Division ambulances are able to be disinfected and returned to service in less than 30 minutes. 

“It is imperative, especially now, that we take all measures possible to keep our patients, team members and community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. The implementation of Aeroclave allows us to continue providing the kind of innovative and leading-edge safety we are nationally recognized for in our facilities,” said Dr. Robin McGuinness, Senior Executive Officer of Patient Outcomes, AdventHealth West Florida Division. 

AdventHealth West Florida Division acquired 10 units of the disinfecting system thanks to the AdventHealth Foundation West Florida and generous community members who donated to the Community Care Fund. This fund has provided lifesaving equipment, supplies and resources to AdventHealth team members and patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
