In the field of medical hygiene, the focus is on avoiding nosocomial infections and the transmission of germs in general. The consistent cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and hands close to the patient is already a central step, as studies ascribe great transmission potential to hands.
Equally important, of course, is the use of hygienic instruments and equipment for any type of treatment or intervention. Not only must the products themselves be checked for cleanliness, but regular performance tests and validations of the preparationprocesses and cleaning equipment must also be carried out.
Numerous standards and guidelines must be observed in this area.
