2 The principal task of health care institution To provide a good health care service To prevent hospital infection; and To prevent hospital infection transmission and spreading

3 Transmission of infection from patient to health care workers, and the other way around, occurs: By direct contact and touch By fecal - oral transmission (food and drink) By air (inhalation) By blood

4 The infections are caused by: bacteria, viruses, fungi … They are present in: water, air, patient’s environment, and Patient can be a source of infection, too.

5 Asepsis Method we use to control microbes transmission from one place to another, from one patient to the other one, or from patient to health care workers. To achieve asepsis we use: disinfection sterilization

6 Disinfection The process of destroying majority of microorganisms Bacterial spores may survive and contaminate Highly effective disinfectants, acting in prolonged time (6-10 h) can eliminate bacterial spores.

7 Disinfection techniques are applied on: Health care providers’ hands Patients’ skin and mucous membranes Instruments and equipment Working surfaces, floors, walls Air in rooms All patients’ requisites and equipment Patients’ clothes, health care workers clothes and footwear.

8 Self protection measures Regular and proper hand cleaning Appropriate use of protective clothing and footwear Appropriate use of masks and gloves Appropriate handling of sterile materials

9 Hand cleaning This is the most important and the most effective preventive method against spreading microbes between health care workers and patients in the hospital. The basic condition for proper hand hygiene is that nails do not overgrow finger cushion. Jewelry and long artificial nails are strictly prohibited
