UV Angel Air technology helps to improve safety measures at 
assisted living facility.

More than 40% of coronavirus deaths in the U.S. are 
linked to nursing homes, and in Massachusetts, the 
percentage is higher at 64%, according to an article 
published in The New York Times on July 30. Dodge 
Park Rest Home in Worcester, Mass decided to invest 
in UV Angel, a leader in pathogen control technology, 
and installed UV Angel Air treatment systems to complement 
Dodge Park’s infection control and existing 
safety efforts creating a cleaner and safer environment 
for its residents and employees.

“The safety of our residents and staff is our highest 
priority, and UV Angel Air serves as a key addition 
to our existing infection prevention measures,” said 
Micha Shalev, co-owner and administrator of Dodge 
Park Rest Home. “COVID-19 has taken a toll on all 
long-term care facilities around the country and we 
continuously look for new and innovative ways to 
help combat the spread of coronavirus between staff 
and residents. The UV Angel Air units are a key piece 
of our overall safety strategy, and we hope to give our 
residents and staff peace of mind that we are doing 
everything we can to improve their environment.”

Along with adding an infection prevention consultant, 
Karen Bain from Eisenstein, Flaherty and Associates,

Dodge Park’s increased cleaning and infection control 
procedures included utilizing electro-static spraying,

additional personal protective equipment (PPE), 
frequent COVID-19 tests for patients and staff, and 
UV Angel Air units that treat the air by neutralizing 
potentially dangerous pathogens.

The patented UV Angel Air combines standard in-ceiling 
lighting with a proprietary UV-C air treatment

system. Air is pulled into the sealed high-intensity 
UV-C chamber where it has been shown in laboratory 
tests to neutralize pathogens with up to 99.99% effectiveness. 
Treated air is then returned to the room, 24/7.

“Nursing homes and assisted living facilities have been 
hit hard by the effects of COVID-19,” said Tom Byrne,

CEO of UV Angel. “Using technology like the UV 
Angel Air can help reduce the spread of infectious 
aerosols carried in by staff and possibly transmitting 
to residents. Unlike other technologies, UV Angel Air 
is an engineering control. It constantly and seamlessly 
treats the air neutralizing pathogens simultaneously, 
while busy staff continue to tend to residents.

Ray Sizer, president of National E Solutions, brought 
the UV Angel Air product to the attention of Dodge 
Park Nursing Home.
