Hospital environment is highly contaminated and good hygiene is vital for healthcare environment. Contaminated hospital environment contributes to the risk of transmission of pathogens which lead to spread of healthcare associated infections (HAIs). Pathogenic microorganisms can be spread from person to person or through contaminated frequently touched objects & surfaces i.e. table tops, door knobs, equipment, buttons, Patient bedcovers, food trays, waste bins etc. Despite struggles to uphold good hand hygiene practices, isolation protocols and cleaning of healthcare surfaces, HAIs has become one of the most serious patient safety concern and hurdle for the healthcare setups. According to World Health Organization (WHO) HAIs are the “most frequent adverse event” in the delivery of healthcare worldwide. HAIs not only cause about 10 million deaths per annum but according to an estimation annually it cost global economy huge amount which can reach up to $100 trillion by 2050.
Hospital surfaces, walls, floors, equipment, water and air supply systems can easily be contaminated with bacteria and microorganisms. These microbes can survive on surfaces for surprisingly longer periods of time and can act as a permanent reservoir of cross contamination.
