Disinfecting Hands for Surgical Procedures
This video clearly explains the proper procedure for surgical hand disinfection.
Disinfectants for the General Practice, Surgery, Hospital & Lab
Disinfectants are among the most important resources in healthcare. They are used for cleaning, preventing infectious transmissions and for providing infection prevention in the general practice, laboratory and hospital room. The disinfectant kills potential pathogenic germs like viruses, fungi, bacteria and bacteria spores to stop them from spreading in healthcare-associated settings. A correctly performed disinfection reduces the risk of germs and prevents the transmission of infections, thus contributing greatly to the maintenance of practice and hospital hygiene.
Germs can settle on surfaces through moisture in the air or through direct contact. The germ count can only be reduced by consequential use of disinfectants. The most effective kind of surface decontamination is by wiping it with an appropriate surface disinfectant like Bacillol, Microbac, Desomed or Kohrsolin.
As an alternative to common liquid cleaners, disinfectants and disinfectant sprays, disinfecting wipes are becoming increasingly popular. Ready-for-use disinfectant wipes are not only very practical, but also time-saving and can be used on the go (e.g. in first aid or large healthcare facilities). Generally, the user should wear protective gloves when using surface disinfectants to protect their skin.
Medical instruments and medical devices are disinfected before sterilisation, to make it less risky for medical personnel to clean them. In general, the instruments are placed in a bath or in machines that automatically clean and disinfect the equipment. This typically requires the use of specialised instrument disinfectants.
Disinfecting hands with a suitable hand sanitiser not only protects the user, but also the patient from infection. Depending on the medical field and facility, the hand sanitizer needs to be effective against specific bacteria, germs and viruses.
In some fields, like general medicine and paediatrics, germs play an important role as many patients entering the practice carry infectious diseases. In other disciplines, e.g. neurology, disinfection plays a subordinate role. As a result, medical professionals should use hand sanitisers with a standard or an extended efficacy spectrum. For infection control in nursing homes and other facilities in which many people live together in close quarters, particular emphasis should be placed on sanitisers that are effective against the norovirus and other rapidly transmissible germs.
Hand sanitisers, such as the Sterillium hand sanitiser, can be purchased from our online shop. To keep hand sanitisers from drying out the hands, you can use small amounts of special moisturising products like the Baktolan medical skin care balm.
In order to prevent germs from penetrating a wound, the skin is disinfected prior to invasive operations, punctures, injections and blood drawing. To prevent surgical site infections and bloodstream infections, the disinfectant is sprayed onto the skin or can be applied with a swab. With us, you will find a large selection of disinfectants to guarantee patient safety, including products like Cutasept from Bode or octenisept from Schülke & Mayr.
