Why is Hygiene so Important in Nursing Care?
Residents, staff, and visitors must be protected from nosocomial infections. Especially the elderly, whose immune systems are no longer powerful enough, are at increased risk from infectious diseases. Their diminished general condition is a risk factor, along with the ever-increasing life expectancy.
Checking the success of disinfection is a typical measure within the framework of the hygiene plan in old people’s and nursing care facilities, as sufficient disinfection is often not given. The causes of inadequate disinfection include poor implementation due to incorrect dosing or insufficient mechanics during wiping, resulting in organic residues remaining on surfaces.
With the HyServe ATP tests, the disinfection and cleaning success can be carried out directly on-site within 10s using swabs and the handy Lumitester Smart. Measuring points can be defined at various points in the facilities to continuously monitor the general hygiene status.
