Disinfection of noncritical environmental surfaces

Noncritical environmental surfaces and noncritical medical equipment surfaces may become contaminate with infectious agents and may contribute to cross-transmission by acquisition of transient hand carriage by health care personnel. Disinfection of noncritical environmental surfaces and equipment is an essential component of an infection prevention program.

J. Darrel Hicks: “Disinfection of noncritical environmental surfaces and equipment is an essential component of an infection prevention program. Noncritical environmental surfaces and noncritical medical equipment surfaces may become contaminate with infectious agents and may contribute to cross-transmission by acquisition of transient hand carriage by health care personnel. Disinfection should render surfaces and equipment free of pathogens in sufficient numbers to prevent human disease (i.e., hygienically clean).”

The inventors of Gabriel Scientific – life sciences company demonstrated in “Pillows: The Forgotten Fomite” that pillow is an often overlooked link in the chain of cross-infection and concluded “CE marked, validated barrier pillow, alongside an audit protocol which considers pillows and their serviceable condition, is a simple, inexpensive, and prudent measure”.
