Hygiene management in the medical practice and pharmacy
The guidelines, which apply in addition to the specifications of the RKI, provide for the determination of the hygiene status, measures to improve the hygiene status, and hygiene documentation. There are separate requirements and necessary documentation for each type of operating room, for example, for the laboratory, consultation room, prescription room, or workplace area.
Measures are defined and regularly monitored in the corresponding hygiene plans. Specified cleaning procedures and their scheduling must be documented, as must cleaning inspections. However, the requirements of the microbiological condition of surfaces cannot be seen with the naked eye.
A visually clean surface is not necessarily hygienically clean. Therefore, limit values for ATP measurements are defined to establish uniform standards for hygienic cleanliness and to prevent germ growth at an early stage.
Even dried residues of cleaning agents or disinfectants can create a new breeding ground for microorganisms. Hygiene management is a continuous process. Once a year, the concept should be put to the test and the employees should be trained internally. With HyServe’s surface tests, the necessary tests can be carried out very easily and quickly. This means that the necessary documentation can be created and verified, and safe hygiene can be ensured in all healthcare operations and facilities.
