Nosocomial infections are among the most frequent complications of medical treatments. The increasing resistance development hampers antibiotic therapies, increases morbidity and mortality and causes additional costs.
In contrast to exogenous nosocomial infections endogenous infections are caused by the patient’s own germ flora. The endogenous skin flora is the main source of infection. To prevent nosocomial infections a proper skin care is essential. Furthermore, recent studies show that decontaminating whole-body washing, whether preventive in ICUs or before surgery, can significantly contribute to the reduction of infection rates.
