Hygiene requirements during cleaning and disinfection of surfaces,” disinfected surfaces may be reused following regular disinfection procedures as long as they are dry, according to the recommendations of the medical Institutes. If you are doing any of the following steps, it is recommended that you wait for the length of the activity to be completed before re-using the surface:
The disinfection of all touch surfaces in the immediate proximity of patients in cases when there is a potential for direct transfer of germs from surfaces into the human body (for example, via wounds) (beds of patients with burns).
Baths in which the disinfection is cancelled out by the flow of water are classified as (risk mainly in case of wounds not completely healed and in obstetrics).
In food preparation facilities (e.g., hospital kitchens), all disinfection procedures must be followed by a thorough washing with potable water. This holds true for every surface that comes into touch with food.
Only clean utensils that have recently been treated should be used
Only clean cleaning tools (rags, mops, etc.) that have been unwrapped to allow the disinfection agents to soak are allowed; gloves are also required.
After using the cleaning utensils, disinfect and dry them thoroughly. Antibiotics should be used to prevent bacteria from multiplying on cleaning equipment. If this is not feasible, throwaway towels should be used.
Procedure for changing the cloth
Changing the towel between each soaking in the disinfectant solution is advised for sanitizing surfaces. The use of a fresh cloth for each application is the only way to avoid the spread of germs between people.
The so-called “one-bucket” technique, which consists in repeatedly immersing the same cloth in the disinfectant solution, should not be utilized since it is ineffective.
The use of fast disinfectants is advised in all patient rooms, but particularly in those with a high volume of patients.
When using fast alcohol-based disinfectants, there are a few guidelines that must be followed:
Alcohol-based fast disinfectants are often only tolerated when there is a low protein and soap load present. As a result, the surfaces to be disinfected must be totally free of organic contaminants and must not seem to be polluted in any visible way.
Before beginning the real disinfection, wipe away any apparent soiling with a disposable cloth soaked in disinfectant before continuing.
- When distributing alcohol-based solutions, it is important to follow all safety precautions.
- During the disinfection process, the surface to be treated must stay wet with disinfectant during the whole process.
- Allow to dry naturally without wiping!
- Use caution while working on wet or damp surfaces!
- First and foremost, turn off all electrical gadgets!
