As bacteria spreading between patients is a mjor disquiet and since phones are however has been known to be quite unhygenic, which will definitely help the effect. Medical related professionals and doctors of course supposed to clean their phones with an alcoholic solution before entering the patients cabin or room. With this solution of a bacteria-free phone could help them even better way.
