This includes the near patient zone which is in direct physical contact with the patient such as bed rails, bedside table or infusion tubing as well as surfaces that are frequently touched by healthcare workers such as monitors, keyboards or surfaces of medical equipment.
Contamination of the patient zone, e.g. by hands, may result in cross-transmission of pathogens and patient colonization or even infection.
Therefore, thoroughly cleansing and disinfection must be applied in the patient zone. Applying an environmental cleaning protocol in the hospital can significantly decrease the number of hospital-acquired infections.
