Hygiene in the Hospital

Our products and services protect people and materials against infections and contamination. Prevention – hand and surface disinfection and instrument reprocessing – plays a decisive role in this respect because preventing infections is much easier than combating them.

Particular importance also attaches to modern wound management. schülke offers a broad range of products for these applications which superbly fulfils all the hygiene-relevant requirements for efficacy and safety for use on damaged skin areas.

The increasing spread of multi-resistant pathogens is an ever-growing problem. MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) and other multi-resistant pathogens (MRP) can cause a wide variety of serious infections. With our extensive portfolio of products for decontamination, we offer antibiotic-free products for different regions of the body.

Infection prevention for patients, staff and visitors

Prevention is by far the most effective octenisan Setmeasure, especially in an era of constantly increasing microbial resistance. Because combating existing contamination or infections is much more demanding and costly - and unfortunately often unsuccessful.

Gaps in the hygiene chain arising due to incorrect hygiene management considerably increase the hygienic risk with fatal consequences for patients, risks for the staff and ultimately also to the detriment of the hospital operator.

We want to close these gaps with our holistic approach. schülke offers effective products, a comprehensive range of services and competent counselling for this purpose.

Permanent focus on hand disinfection

Hand

Consistent and correctly performed hand hygiene minimises the risk of transmission and reduces contamination with pathogens by about 99.9 %.

Our product lines for hand disinfection offer not only outstanding efficacy but also enhanced skin protection due to their special moisturising, skin conditioning and lipid replenishing additives. The range of schülke skin care products, which were formulated to be optimally compatible with our hand disinfectants, also have soothing and regenerating effects.

 

Decontamination of surfaces and instruments

Surface disinfection means overall protection against pathogenic microorganisms which can survive for several months on floors and other hospital surfaces. Our surface hygiene products offer maximum infection prevention, minimise health risks and satisfy the highest requirements for cleaning, disinfection and care in hospitals.

Equally effective and important is instrument reprocessing which not only enhances patient and staff protection but also maximises instrument service life. schülke’s products are custom formulated to their area of use and comprehensively tested for efficacy. The development of our product lines focuses not only on efficacy but also on occupational safety and user friendliness.

Professional skin antisepsis protects against infections

To prevent the risks of infection and contamination, the skin also has to be suitably disinfected. With octeniderm® colourless and kodan® tincture forte, schülke offers two high-quality products with a broad spectrum of action and outstanding skin tolerability. These products are used successfully, for example, when placing a venous catheter, before operations, injections, punctures and before cannulations, excisions and biopsies.
