Dear visitor!

It is the task of hospital hygiene to detect and analyze nosocomial (i.e. acquired in the hospital) infections, and to work out preventive activities to formulate them into practically realizable guidelines and to observe their compliance.
Investigations of hospital hygiene and consulting of all Tyrolean health institutions are the main responsibilities of our work.
Regularly performed controls of hygiene as well as personal consulting shall warrant a closer infectiologic and microbiologic support and contribute to further limitation of nosocomial infections. The legislative body prescribes among others the formulation of specific hygiene plans, in which the single activities are described:

pfeil-klein.jpgstandard-hygiene activities like hand hygiene, dealing with drugs, dealing with medicine
   products, cleaning, disinfection and sterilization
pfeil-klein.jpghygiene during medical and custodial activities

pfeil-klein.jpgsurveillance of water supply and of air condition
pfeil-klein.jpgrevision of disinfection and sterilization machines
pfeil-klein.jpgmicrobiological investigations of drugs, medicine products, and environment

The domain hospital hygiene and technical hygiene mainly deals with the performance of investigations and revisions that are prescribed by the legislative body (see performance catalogue).
Further tasks are reviews of hospital hygiene for public and other authorities.
Our staff of hospital and technical hygiene is involved in the performance of lectures for students of human and dental medicine and for trainees of non-doctoral health professions and co-operates in advanced trainings for employees in public health care.
