Hygiene and quality: Standards for every dialysis centre

07-01-2011 12:21 PM CET | Health & Medicine

Press release from: Pabst Science Publishers

"The immunodeficiency of the dialysis patient, the risk of transmissions of infectious diseases, the high technical demand of the treatment as well as the requirement for a regular repetition of the treatment, all these factors require that a distinct consciousness and behaviour concerning hygiene is respected by all those concerned within the facility", the "Guideline for Applied Hygiene in Dialysis Units" postulate.

The guideline serves all professional groups who are directly or indirectly involved in the supply, care, nursing, and therapy of dialysis patients. The guideline represents a reference book which links hygiene with quality management and gives answers to practical questions.

For example: "A hygienic disinfection of the hands without previous washing is sufficient. Preconditions for effective hand hygiene are short fingernails trimmed to the finger tips with surfaces which are not cracked or polished.

The wearing of artificial fingernails by medical staff must be refused. It has been documented that outbreaks of pseudomonas aeruginosa, candida, or ESBL-developing klebsiella could be traced back to artificial fingernails..."

A high degree of functionality and user-friendliness of the medical equipment shall be guaranteed, the guideline explains. "Short and long term complications in patients can occur as a result of hygienic weaknesses in the medical equipment and their installations. These complications have to be avoided."

Dr. Medard Hilhorst (Erasmus Medical University Rotterdam) argues "that partial values are fundamental
