More attention for the prevention of infections in residential care centers, but there are still work points


First the good practices. Almost all (90 percent) of the residential care centers studied have laid down their infection prevention policy in written agreements.

Mouth-nose masks were worn correctly almost everywhere and the hygiene rules for the hands (groomed nails, short sleeves, disinfected hands) are well followed by 85 percent of the staff.

What could be improved is the hygiene of the washbasins. In 44 percent of the centers studied, those washbasins were not fully equipped with the material for correct hand hygiene. “It’s about fairly simple issues that are easy to solve,” says Moykens. “For example, a dispenser with liquid soap, the disposable towels, instructions on how to wash your hands correctly and a trash can that you should not operate with your hands, but with your foot or an open trash can. If one element is missing, they will get it as a tip. That can be solved very quickly. “

Another focal point was the handheld dispensers near the residents’ rooms. These were still missing in 61 percent of the institutions.
