Hospitals and health care

It’s well-documented just how many people suffer from unnecessary infections in hospitals: around one in 20 patients will suffer from a healthcare associated infection (HAI).

Health care facilities, therefore, require additional stringent measures to main a sanitary environment.

Patients and visitors are at their most vulnerable in a hospital and must be protected from harmful bacteria, viruses and other germs.

Germs can be spread through airborne means, direct contact (hands) and contaminated surfaces, as well as in the food and water and through clothing and furnishing.
