It is important that each hospital industry has its own protocols and products ensuring health and safety, due to high risk exposure of patients and caregivers of contracting infections related to medical care.
It is followed by pharmaceutical production sites like laboratories, warehouses and logistics, that require special attention in order that the materials produced are not contaminated with pathogenic microorganisms.
When it comes to disinfection, hospitals demand special attention because of the vulnerability of its clients/patients/residents that are most susceptible to infections and the concentration of pathogenic microorganisms found in these places. Thus requiring interventions that cannot be limited to deep cleaning. Constant, certified and strict protocols need to be followed. The COVID-19 pandemic reminded us of such urgency…
It is important before any disinfection to deep clean all areas since the active ingredients of disinfectants neutralize dirt, in this matter reducing the microbial load and the risk of spreading infections.
The hospital can be categorize into three areas based on the risk factor determining the need for environmental cleaning:
- LOW RISK: these are common areas where surfaces and other items that are not exposed to blood or body fluids (e.g., offices, lounges, cafeterias). Sanitation must be follow a fixed schedule and additionally as required.
- MEDIUM RISK: these are areas where surfaces and equipment are not routinely contaminated with blood or other bodily fluids. All client/patient/resident rooms and bathrooms. Disinfection should be done at least once a day and additionally as needed.
- HIGH RISK: these are highly contaminated areas, surfaces and equipment are routinely exposed to large amounts of fresh blood or body fluids (eg, operating rooms, delivery rooms, autopsy rooms, cardiac catheterization labs, emergency rooms, hemodialysis, intensive care units, burn units, etc.). Disinfection must be performed after each case, procedure or event and additionally as required.
In this sector, the areas affected by infections are the washing tunnels, isolators, laminar flow cabinets, research laboratories, warehouses, logistics rooms for bioproducts and vector protection systems. It is advisable to have specialists who can guarantee the safety and effectiveness of disinfection operations. AMIL Care specialists plan the disinfection procedures based on valid, safe and easy to follow protocols.
DISINFECTION METHODOLOGY STEPS by AMIL Care
- Reconditioning of environmental parameters.
- Information and analysis: on previous cleaning and disinfection processes, as disinfectants or detergents may leave residues or react to cause corrosion in their interaction with hydrogen peroxide.
- Positioning of micro-nebulizers: definition of quantity and direction of the nozzles.
- Protocol settings: volume of hydrogen peroxide solution based on a fixed concentration.
- Verification of the ppm: concentration of hydrogen peroxide in the environment.
To the need of effective sanititazion/disinfection protocols of a different nature, Medisystem was born. With the aim of scientifically supporting the need to obtain healthy environments free of pathogens. This is possible through replicable protocols and certifiable standards of effectiveness in all conditions.
AMIL Care implements high level disinfection by using hydrogen peroxide. This procedure must be carried out with special micro-nebulization systems in closed places and in the absence of people.
Our patented (CE marked/FDA registered) Medibios Class I medical device, along with our Evolyse (basic/strong) Eco-friendly chemical disinfectant solution, both with proven studies to support their effectiveness, are the answer to high-level disinfection at the hospital industry.
Medisystem’s spectrum of efficacy is superior to that of most competing systems, since it has virucidal, bactericidal, mycobactericidal, fungicidal and sporicidal activity. The standardization, traceability and automation of the process allows greater security and excludes the possibility of human error because it can be used independently of operator intervention.
Thanks to its international patent, through the micro-nebulized saturation of the product, the system disinfects the most confined and hard-to-reach areas, being effective also on smooth and porous surfaces. The particles (<1 to 5 µm) are emitted through a turbine in a constant quantity according to the assigned protocol established in compliance with current health and safety regulations.
