Sepsis: A fatal risk
It is in your hands: Measures for improved hand hygiene
Use an alcohol-based hand disinfectant with replenishing properties
- State of the art: according to the World Health Organization (WHO) alcohol-based rubs are the gold standard in hand hygiene and an effective weapon against the transmission of pathogens 5
- Sterillium®, the pioneer among the alcohol-based hand disinfectants, convinces with more than 50 years of user experience
- Achieving 30 % more skin hydration with regular use, Sterillium® offers best compliance opportunities
- Rapid and comprehensive antimicrobial activity combined with good skin tolerability - even with long-term use
Establish optimised working processes for more success with hand hygiene
- Healthcare workers learn the necessary hygiene measures through the example of a concrete work process and thus gain experience and certainty
- A standardised process for placing a peripheral venous catheter could increase the compliance by 45 % and thus considerably reduce the risk of sepsis 6
