Mit einem Fazit am Ende eines jeden Kapitels werden die für die Praxis wesentlichen Erkenntnisse komprimiert zusammengefasst. Ein Team aus insgesamt 11 Autoren befasst sich im ersten Teil des Buches mit der Kontamination von Flächen, den Übertragungswegen, Flächen-assoziierten nosokomialen Infektionen, dem OP-Bereich, der unmittelbaren und erweiterten Patientenumgebung, Stethoskopen, mobilen elektronischen Geräten, der praktischen Durchführung von Reinigung und Desinfektion, dem Schutz der Mitarbeiter bei der Durchführung der Flächendesinfektion, den verschiedenen Tuchspendersystemen sowie der Qualitätssicherung in der Flächenhygiene. Im zweiten Buchteil werden die Prüfmethoden zur Bestimmung der Wirksamkeit, die antimikrobielle Wirkung der häufigsten chemischen Wirkstoffe - einschließlich Kupfer und Photodynamik - sowie Möglichkeiten zur Reduktion des bakteriellen Selektionsdrucks in der Flächendesinfektion beschrieben („Antimicrobial Stewardship“)."

Lukas Kuhn completed his training at the School of Life Science of the UKE from 2017 - 2019. At that time, he did his first internship at our institute on Norderney. After his training, Lukas found his way back to us and has been working with us on Norderney ever since. There he is responsible for technology. Lukas keeps existing test stands running, carries out minor repairs and is involved in the development of new test methods and equipment. "The work here on Norderney is special in that every day is different here. You work a lot outside at the harbor and on the beach and are dependent on the weather and tides there. My tasks here are very varied, from evaluating experiments to image processing and manual work. In addition, there is a very pleasant working atmosphere with top colleagues." Applications to the School of Life Science for the training start August 2021 are still possible until May 31. We look forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with all future interns.

11. eHealth-Lounge - "The Future of Hygiene"
Epidemics of influenza or the current Corona pandemic are impressive examples of how microorganisms can spread within a very short time and what consequences such spreads can have for a society. Viable hygiene concepts and preventive measures for the prevention of infections are therefore relevant in all areas of life. New, traceable and safe infection prevention solutions must be developed and implemented in hospitals as well as in inpatient and outpatient facilities and services. Which (digital) solution options for better hygiene protection already exist and how can these solutions be transferred to other areas and sectors? What can we learn from the requirements of the pandemic? How will we deal with the issue of hygiene in the future? On the occasion of the International Day of Hand Hygiene, the eHealth Network Hamburg of Gesundheitswirtschaft Hamburg GmbH takes up these and other questions in our next online event and invites you to the 11th eHealth Lounge - "The Future of Hygiene". Date: May 5, 2021 Time: 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. You can find more information about the event HERE
