Hospital infection control is simply a procedure to reduce the risk of
infection transmission within healthcare environment via medical devices,
surgical instruments /equipment & patient care products.
Hospital infection control is needed not only for crucial patient care
but also for the establishment of high quality standards to maintain consistent
high standards for sterilization technique and decontamination process
quality throughout the hospital.
Hospital infection control helps
in a hospital set up with several advantages such as:
1.Assured control of infection transmission via
patient diagnostic /patient care products.
2.Increased efficiency due to proper utilization of equipments and manpower.
3.Enhanced component life.
4.Improved Inventory control, packing and distribution.
To provide solutions for hospital
infection, the CSSD (central sterile supply division) has come into place.
A CSSD is like a manufacturing plant
for sterile items. The collection of soiled items from operation theaters,
ICU's, wards, out patients department and other specialties are collected
to the CSSD for processing, then returned to the end users.
The CSSD centralizes the sterile processing activities, in which reusable
medical devices and surgical instruments and equipment (excluding the
operating theatre procedures) are processed and issued for diagnostic
and patient care procedures.
The layout of the CSSD department, the placement of the disinfection equipment,
and personnel movement within department are issues considered when a
CSSD is to be made effective.
At Machinfabrik our CSSD solutions
are based on extensive research and careful development to provide an
economical yet assured solution to the needs of hospital disinfection
Our approach to CSSD development is based on differentiating specific
areas such as soiled area, clean area and sterile area within the CSSD.
these areas are obviously indicative of decreasing levels of disinfection
to end with a completely sterile product at the sterile area.
The idea is to have well defined areas (as mentioned above) with a "knockdown
effort" in each area that ensures no chance of infection transmission
as the material moves through disinfection procedures from less clean
to more clean area to end in a sterile product stored in a sterile area.
