What is Infection Control?
Infection Control is, quite simply, the process that prevents or stops the spread of infections in Healthcare Settings. It is when improvement or change occurs to interrupt and monitor a key transmission pathway.
What is a Transmission Pathway?
A Transmission Pathway is the route a microorganism (a bug or a germ) uses to travel from one location to another. Infection Control is a simple management technique that can transform and improve a facility by identifying risks that are affecting the processes and procedures of a facility.
In healthcare settings, infection control solutions prevent Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) from being transmitted to patients, staff or visitors. By using our range of Infection control consumables, the level of protection is raised, and the risk posed by HAI’s is lowered.
The four main transmission pathways are:
- Hands and Skin
Here at Sychem, we are specialists in ‘interrupting’ key transmission pathways using our extensive product portfolio. With our range of chemicals, Steelco Autoclaves and Washers, we destroy Infection through Decontamination and Sterilisation methods. Sychem specialises in ‘monitoring’ decontamination and sterilisation methods through the use of our comprehensive variety of Infection Control Consumables. These products are designed to ensure processes are maintained, and regulatory guidelines are followed. The performance of the process is crucial to ensuring the quality and conformance of any Sterilisation or Decontamination process.
