MDA EMTs and paramedics were trained to operate an ambulance disinfection system
Thirty EMTs and paramedics at Magen David Adom from across the country underwent training this week on how to fully disinfect ambulances and MICUs, using a new, American-made advanced system.
The system will be integrated among other means available in MDA for disinfecting ambulances and MICUs, and will be used in various cases, following the evacuation of people who may be carrying infectious diseases.
“Magen David Adom began examining new disinfectant systems even before the world’s Coronavirus began to spread, and now the need is even higher,” explains MDA Medical Division Director Rami Miller. “A comprehensive comparison of this system, alongside other systems, found that its effectiveness in fully disinfecting ambulances was extremely high.”
MDA Director General Eli Bin: “Magen David Adom constantly examines and develops measures to optimize medical care and evacuation in ambulances and MICUs, while keeping an eye on the health and safety of sick and injured patients, as well as MDA staff and volunteers. We have purchased ten disinfection systems, which will be operated by MDA employees and volunteers around the country, so that we can operate independently in cases where a comprehensive and thorough disinfection of the emergency vehicles is required.”
