In healthcare infection control is referred to as the discipline deployed to prevent nosocomial or hospital-acquired infections (HAIs), it is a practical sub-discipline of epidemiology and is the crucial yet often overlooked area of the infrastructure of a healthcare facility to protect its patients, staff, and visitors from acquiring infections during their visit or stay.

Transmission pathways

Infection control could be referred to as the process by which improvement or change occurs to interrupt and monitor a critical transmission pathway. What is a transmission pathway? It is the route a microorganism (a bug or a germ) uses to travel from one location to another. Not many people consider the simplicity behind infection control management, but here at Sychem, we strive to enable individuals the knowledge and confidence to better serve their facilities via the identification of the risks affecting their processes and procedures. The four main transmission pathways are;

  1. Hands/skin
  2. Surfaces
  3. Water
  4. Air

Disinfection Specialists

At Sychem we are the specialists in “interrupting” the key transmission pathways through the use of disinfection and cleaning chemicals. We also tackle key transmission pathways through the use of sterilisation and decontamination equipment such as autoclaves and washers. In addition to this, we specialise in “monitoring” these processes via the use of our extensive range of infection control consumables to ensure procedures are maintained and performance in keeping with regulatory guidelines. Process performance is crucial in ensuring the quality and conformance of any sterilisation or decontamination process.

With the aid of our infection control consumables and processes, we can minimise the chances of infection occurring or cross-contamination happening. Our solutions can help a variety of industries; whether it be food processing, healthcare sterile service departments, dental clinics, veterinary practices, tattoo and piercing parlours, pharmaceutical or diagnostic laboratories.
