This is what ionizing does.  It makes the bacteria in the air sticky and 
charged so that the bodies are drawn to objects such as plastics, glass and 

The objective is that you run the ionizor for a few hours then clean the 
surfaces.  Instant clean room.

So in the case of a hospital it probably does work perfectly, provided that 
during the ionization period you don't touch a surface and stick your 
fingers in your mouth!

Little children pick up most 24 hour type bugs from hand or mouth contact 
with playgrounds in shopping centres where the kid who threw up yesterday 
gets a rudimentary "mopping over"
