Surface hygiene

Cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces is an important and effective step in reducing the spread of infection. Just like the hands, surfaces can harbour disease causing germs otherwise known as pathogens, through direct contact with infected individuals or through in-direct contact with contaminated objects or equipment.  Numerous clinical studies have shown that pathogens can survive on hard surfaces for long periods of time and can continue to be a source of transmission via the hands of the health care worker, visitors or the patient themself. 

Regular cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces, including the environment immediately around the patient can reduce cross-contamination and the transmission of pathogens to vulnerable individuals and from one area to another.
