Healthcare-associated infections

Science has shown that healthcare-associated infections, also knowns as hospital-acquired infections or HAI’s are not only transferred by other patients, but also by healthcare personnel, or even transmitted by water or air.
The immediate environment of the patient can also be an important source of nosocomial and cross infections. Many micro-organisms causing these infections (including MRSA & COVID-19) are known to contaminate hospital environments and tend to survive on dry surfaces for days, weeks and even months.
In case of an outbreak, the source of infection must be isolated from the rest of the hospital and the intensity of the cleaning and disinfection program must be scaled up.

Of every 100 hospitalized patients at any given time, 7 in developed and 10 in developing countries will acquire at least one health care-associated infection.

Antibiotic resistance

Another factor that makes prevention even more crucial for the healthcare sector, is resistance to different generations of antibiotics. Patients are counting on the hospital to provide them with a clean and safe environment. That’s why it’s of the utmost importance to break the triangle of cross-contamination (contaminated surface – hands of the healthcare workers – susceptible patients) by cleaning and disinfection.


Since the beginning of 2020, the entire world is focused on taking actions to tackle the outbreak of COVID-19, and to mitigate the consequences of this enormous crisis. Good hygiene measures became a part of everyday life, from washing your hands, ‘keeping distance’, to the everyday use of alcohol gels, disinfectants and face masks.

COVID-19 is caused by SARS-CoV-2, an encapsulated virus that belongs to the Coronaviridae family. Contraction of the novel coronavirus can occur after contact with contaminated surfaces or objects, followed by touching the nose, eyes or mouth. Systematically disinfecting frequently used living and working spaces will prevent viral transmission, a crucial step in controlling an outbreak and stopping the infectious threat.
