      Hospital Hygiene

      Hospital hygiene is a firmly established area of responsibility in Krankenhaus Waldfriede and serves to ensure the protection of the patients and the staff. 

      • Since 1990, according to legal guidelines (e.i. Regional Hospital Statute/Infection Protection law) and the recommendations of the Robert Koch Institute, hygiene has been structured and strictly enforced in our hospital.
      • Dr. med. Klaus Dieter Zastrow, Doctor for Hygiene and Environmental Medicine (Institute for Hygiene and Environmental Medicine, Vivantes Clinic, Berlin) is our consultant for hospital hygiene.
      • Mrs. Ute Boakye, with her years of experience, holds the position of qualified hygiene specialist. She is the contact person for hygiene in the nursing, medical and specialty departments in our acute care hospital, as well as for the kitchen, the affiliated short-term nursing facility and outpatient social services.
      • We have authorized hygiene physicians and nurses in all of the medical departments, who work in cooperation with hospital management, or staff and technicians. The above mentioned people, under the direction of the hospital director and within the framework of commission sessions on hygiene, are continually seeking to address, strengthen and update hygiene issues, as well as to react in a timely manner in acute infectious situations (e.g. Swine Flu). Because there are patients in the hospital with infectious diseases as well as those with a compromised immune system, cross-infection through pathogenic organisms can become a big problem. Through the implementation of appropriate hygienic measures, our goal is to prevent the transmission of infectious pathogens (nosocomial infection; hospital-acquired-infection; or the outbreak of a chain of infection) to the patients or the personnel. Especially now, when nosocomial infections are increasing with antibiotic resistant pathogens such as MRSA, ESBL or VRE. These are hard to treat and are increasingly gaining more importance in the hospital hygienic setting.
      • Each co-worker in the hospital has access to a detailed hygiene plan with exact operational guidelines, as well as sterilization procedures on the internal computer network system. Relevant topics on hygiene, isolation standards and guidelines for the prevention of pathogen transmission, are taught and then tested by actual performance.
      • In cooperation with an accredited laboratory, the qualified hygiene specialists regularly monitor, e.g. the quality of the drinking water and the efficiency of the technical disinfection equipment, sterilization and air conditioning, in order to be certain that our hospital meets the quality standards of the legal norms.
