Hygiene is critical in healthcare environments such as hospitals, surgery centers, home care and specialized care homes. Even with isolation protocols and good hand hygiene practices, as well as cleaning of healthcare surfaces, hospital care still faces the risk of Healthcare Associated Infections (HCAI), one of the most serious patient safety concerns. As patient safety is the prime focus of healthcare, preventing HCAI remains a top priority.
