Cleaning Hospital Room Surfaces to Prevent Health Care-Associated Infections
Han J.H. et al. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are the leading cause of illness and death world-wide. A multifaceted approach to preventing infection is critical to reducing the risk for HAIs as several studies demonstrate that healthcare-associated pathogens frequently contaminate the patient environment, including both porous surfaces and hard non-porous surfaces. Contaminated surfaces are a reservoir for the transmission of pathogens directly through patient contact with the environment or indirectly through contamination of health care workers’ hand or gloves.
