At our hospital, a specially trained hygiene team ensures that hospital hygiene is implemented and maintained. It consists of
- a senior hospital hygienist
- specially educated and trained hygiene specialists
- hygiene officers in nursing
- physicians responsible for hygiene in each department
Every year, our employees are trained on hygiene measures in accordance with the legal provisions. The hospital hygiene guidelines are binding as a company-wide regulation for all employees of the Helios Hospital Group. It represents a set of work instructions with the aim of achieving a consistently high standard of hygiene.
The guidelines are based primarily on evidence-based recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the HICPAC (Hospital Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee)/ CDC guidelines (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, USA) which are scientifically justified in accordance with the requirements of evidence-based medicine for individual infection prophylactic measures.
