Health Care Associated Infection Control

Healthcare associated infections (HCAIs) are a persistent public health problem and though well documented, existing strategies/solutions are constantly failing to control their spread, let alone completely eradicate them. These can have multifaceted etiologies and the role of aerosolised microorganisms in hospital acquired infection is not very well understood.

How Do You Design a Cleanroom?

A cleanroom suite consists of two primary components: the structure and the ventilation system. Yes, there are lots of other things found inside your cleanroom but they are mostly process specific and have little to do with the cleanroom itself.

Isolation Controls

The requirement for isolation frequently depends on the knowledge of routes of pathogen transmission. The knowledge and understanding of infection is mainly derived from epidemiological and microbiological research into the transmission patterns, and characteristics of known and emerging diseases.

Disabling Infection

Following the cleaning processes taking place in Saudi Arabia’s King Fahad Medical City, Noel Gonzaga stipulates the importance of infection control in all corners of the hospital.

Ensuring Contamination Control

Disinfectants used in hospitals and biopharmaceutical facilities should be selected with care, not least to show that they are compatible with the detergents used to clean, with the surfaces intended to be disinfected and with each other. In this exclusive extract from ‘The CDC Handbook: A Guide to Cleaning & Disinfecting Cleanrooms’, Dr Tim Sandle outlines the essential requirements for the validation of disinfectants, focusing upon European standards.

Hand Decontamination

The importance of hand sanitisation today The issue is no longer whether hand hygiene is effective in reducing infection, but how to ensure the best hand sanitisation is achieved successfully, and at the least cost.

Keeping Hands And Surfaces Clean

Microbiological control within healthcare facilities and hospital pharmacy cleanrooms is of great importance to prevent the spread of contamination and for the prevention of nosocomial infections. This is achieved through correctly designed premises, using sterilised materials and through good hygiene controls. Hygiene is particularly important in healthcare settings to prevent the spread of contamination. One of the routes for the spreading of infection is via hands, whether gloved or ungloved, or through contaminated surfaces.

Clean By Design

Designing modern, effective and, most importantly, clean hospitals for the 21st century requires an innovative, informed, and cost-effective approach. Incorporating dirty utilities or sluice rooms into the architectural design of new/refurbished hospitals and other care facilities needs consideration of all factors relating to, as a minimum, infection control, access, flow of work and layout.

Clostridium Difficile Colitis

Widely known as the most common gut bug infection, Leah Frederick identifies key priorities in containing the epidemic proportions of Clostridium difficile, and for controlling it should it strike your facility.

Disinfection And Infection Control

The perceived cleanliness of reusable textiles processed by a laundry is important - even more so when these are used within a healthcare environment, where recipient’s immune systems may already be compromised.
