Jan 12 2018 by Xenex Science

Germ-zapping robots deployed last year at Ochsner Medical Center have proven themselves as effective tools in the fight against healthcare-associated infections.

The mechanical, high-tech crew has been yielding substantial results, significantly reducing hospital-related infections.
