Expert explains how evidence-based cleaning will help reduce HCAI deaths
Interclean, which organises the highly successful cleaning exhibitions and conferences that take place in Amsterdam every two years, has interviewed Professor Didier Pittet, chairman of Clean Hospitals and director of the infection control programme at the University of Geneva Hospitals Faculty of Medicine, about the importance of healthcare cleaning.
Professor Pittet cites good hand hygiene and environmental cleaning as being of paramount importance if we are to get to get to grips with the 16 million deaths caused by healthcare associated infections each year. He says that every year, more studies are carried out on the subject and that the findings are enabling us to devise evidence-based strategies that produce more effective results.
