Disinfection of public spaces
Speaking of disinfection means to define that set of operations aimed at neutralizing pathogenic microorganisms existing outside the human organism, animal, etc … and to pursue, consequently, the total destruction. Wanting to give a definition “disinfection is the set of measures designed to destroy pathogens of contamination in the external environment, that is, sites on inanimate objects.”
The goal of disinfection is to stop the development of “microbism”, a term with which we indicate the pollution of the premises and the atmosphere confined by harmful elements or parasites, especially viruses, molds, schizomycetes, etc.
Czyszczenie, dezynfekcja i sterylizacja są kluczowymi środkami zapobiegania rozprzestrzenianiu się infekcji. Mimo to w wielu placówkach służby zdrowia brakuje jednego lub drugiego z tych podstawowych kwestii, w zakresie zapobiegania zakażeniom i kontroli zakażeń a personel nie jest wystarczająco szkolony w tym zakresie.
Cleaning, disinfection and sterilization are key measures to prevent the spread of infections. Despite this, in many health facilities one or other of these basic infection prevention and control interventions is lacking or the staff does not receive sufficient training in this regard.
Disinfection of environments is an activity that in recent years was necessary in the event of contamination of biological origin very important, in the event of pandemics. It was in fact widely used some years ago for the onset of SARS. We believe that it should be used not only in the case of ongoing events but also and above all as a preventive activity in the fight against nosocomial infections and in areas of high attendance or production of foodstuffs and pharmaceutical products.
