On April 23, Christeyns Morocco welcomed 90 health care professionals in Casablanca at its first scientific symposium on hygiene in hospital environments.
Both in hospitals, residential care centers and in home care, residents and patients may be confronted with infections during the care process. They can get these healthcare infections through contact with contaminated surfaces, bed linen and medical instruments, but also through the air or through consumption of food. It is therefore important not only for patients but also for staff and visitors to guarantee the hygiene in hospital environments and not to give so-called “hospital-acquired infections” a chance. Through workshops, guest speakers and discussions, Christeyns Medical Hygiene wants to educate healthcare professionals in preventing and combating these infections.
