Global case studies say that about three-fifth of hospital admitted people get infected through communicable diseases, these are called nosocomial infections or HAI (Hospital Acquired Infections), and are avoidable.

Hospitals and other health care units are places known for their selfless service. But, these places are prone to some of the most infectious diseases with high chances of from human to human, or human to fomite to human contamination. Those involved personnel could be doctors, and staff, or patient. Hence, every step should be taken for their safety and precautionary measures should be opted for at regular intervals.

Sterilization is a process carried out to eliminate or neutralize all forms of microbial life such as bacteria, viruses, spores, etc. from a targeted area. Any application can be considered germs free and can be used for contact purposes if tagged Sterilized.

Sterilization in hospitals is considered a regular and needful practice carried out in each and every critical and non-critical areas such as operation theatres (OT), wards, corridors, HVAC/ AC ventilations, toilets, patient facilities, ICU, ICCU, CCU, ITU, pathology labs, etc. These places are vulnerable to communicable harmful bacterial, viral strains affect humans, even life-threatening. The indoor atmosphere and its surfaces are the most that human beings come in direct contact with and become fomites.

Therefore, the first and the foremost thing to do is regular indoor air sanitation and surface disinfection through spraying, wiping or fumigation.Secondly, all equipment must be properly cleaned and disinfected as they directly come in contact. Similarly proper disinfection of wards and corridors should be implemented as maximum patients and their relatives wait in these places for their turn and treatment. The most sensitive areas viz., toilets, washrooms should not be ignored and needs to be regularly cleaned and disinfected.

Using enzymatic detergents and surfactants may give outer cleanliness butcannot ensure proper sanitation, leading to massive spread of infectious microorganisms. What is needed is proper disinfecting chemical which on application, through sterilization will ensure maximum sanitation and optimum disinfection.

Option? Chemical Sterilization. Why? Feasible, Cost Effective, Broad Spectrum Efficacy, Saves Time and Labour, over all types of microbes. Chemicals like Hydrogen Peroxide, Alcohol, and Quaternary Ammonium Compounds can be used as highly effective disinfectants owing to their dedicated chemical attributes.

Alcohol with a low boiling point, disrupts cellular structure of microorganisms on contact basis, and dries up.

QACs or Quaternary Ammonium Compounds have long alkyl chains, broadly effective over pathogens.

Hydrogen Peroxide, rapid oxidizing agent, ruptures cell membrane and nuclei of microbial cells, and breaks down into water and oxygen. FDA has approved 7.5% hydrogen peroxide as hospital disinfectant.

And these disinfectant chemicals do not possess residual toxicity, not develop antibiotic resistance.

Chemtex Speciality Limited, the chemical technology experts manufactures wide range of broad spectrum disinfectants based on alcohol, QACs, hydrogen peroxide aided with cleaner tailor made for hospitals and pharma, effectively eliminating almost all types of pathogens be it bacteria, fungi or virus.
