CLEAN HANDS INSIDE HOSPITALS
Health care-associated infections (HCAI abr.) are one of the most important aspects of contemporary institutional and ambulatory medicine. Hands are always to be washed after removing of disposable gloves; Plastic aprons and disposable gloves are to be used only once and then thrown away;
Patients must know that the doctor is always ready to answer their questions related to the technique of hand disinfection, explaining to their patients how important it is to disinfect their hands in the hospital environment and beyond.
DID YOU KNOW…?
Most infections in hospitals are caused by unwashed hands.
Studies show that disinfection of the hands in the hospital environment is done less than 50% of what it should.
Medical staff must disinfect their hands at least* 100 times in a 12-hour shift (Depending on the number of patients. The procedure is performed as often as necessary.)
The use of gloves does not replace the disinfection of the hands before and after the intervention.
The hands must remain moist for at least 20 seconds after use of the alcohol-based disinfectant. That means the correct amount of disinfectant was used.
