According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of every 20 patients would be on the receiving end of an infection whenever they stay at the hospital. That sounds like a pretty high chance – 5%, to be exact. Well, for a certain hospital over in Fort Worth, the hospital intends to fight this particular issue with an ultraviolet light machine which resembles a droid from the world of science fiction. Over at the Texas Health Resources Southwest Fort Worth, a robot known as Xenex will move around operating rooms on its routine, sending out ultraviolet light in order to kill potentially dangerous microbes.
Kathy Rhodes, the infection prevention co-ordinator, shared, “We put this in the room, close the door and it gives a pulsated ultraviolet light that actually essentially ruptures the bacteria and viruses and kills them on the spot.” The Xenex robot was purchased over a year ago where it came with a $82,000 price tag. The Xenex robot stands at 3 feet in height, where it will raise its round head for approximately two feet as it turns its head 360 degrees while emitting the pulses of UV light, performing what is known as environmental cleaning. Do you think that all hospitals should employ such robots to get the job done?
There is nothing quite like a patch to fix up issues in a game, and hopefully for gamers of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, a patch will be issued soon so that the game-breaking save bug would be fixed and gamers are able to move on with their lives without seeing all of their hard work go down the drain. I guess this is why it always pays to have at least a couple of save game slots in existence. Well, here we are with word that the Diablo 3 PS3 patch has been issued so that it will be able to fix whatever annoying crash issues that had plagued gamers for some time already, although those who are rocking to the Xbox 360 from Microsoft will have to sit it out for the moment and wait a little bit longer.
A post on Battle.net touts that the folks over at Blizzard does not quite yet have an ETA on when the Xbox 360 patch will be madeavailable to the masses. Apart from that, it remains unclear as to whether the Xbox 360 version is currently in the pipeline, or whether it has already been completed but simply needs certification from the folks over at Microsoft. Either way, both patches should carry the same content and fix similar issues, so whatever we see in the PS3 patch notes ought to be an indicator of what is to come.
