Managing and controlling nosocomial infection

Nosocomial infections cause significant morbidity and mortality in patients. This means that implementing infection management policies and suitable hygiene measures to keep hospitals and patient areas clean is an absolute imperative. In some cases, replacing reusable products with single-use products helps to keep infection rates down. Our products are always designed with minimal parts and infection prevention in mind – helping you to improve workflow efficiency and reduce the risk of such infections in your hospital.

Each year around 400,000 to 600,000 patients fall ill with nosocomial infections in Germany. According to the National Surveillance Center (NRZ), a great number of these infections could be prevented with suitable hygiene measures.
