The human hand is and will remain our most important work tool – and is in constant use in everyday clinical practice. However, since around 80% of all hospital-acquired infections are transmitted by hands, they represent the greatest risk of microbial transmission. Consistent hand disinfection for doctors, nurses, carers and patients helps to break the chain of transmission.
The health of skin affects the risk of the hand as a carrier of disease. Irritated skin, cracks and even the smallest wound are an invitation to all kinds of pathogens to settle on or in the body. Care and protection of the hands is therefore an essential component of hand hygiene, because only healthy skin can be effectively disinfected.
