Abstract

Intra-hospital or nosocomial hospital infections are caused by microorganisms acquired during the hospitalization of the patient, and clinically are manifested from 48 to 72 hours after admission at earliest. The procedures for disinfection and the type and quantity of disinfectants used are directly related to the effects. The control of intra-hospital infections is performed by intra-hospital infections Commission which is responsible for taking swabs of sediments and air for proving none/presence of bacteria, as well as taking measures if contamination occurs and timely detection of intra-hospital infections. This research’s aim is to review and select appropriate ways in order to prevent intra-hospital infections. Statistical processing of data received from Clinical Centre in Stip, Republic of Macedonia in the period 2009 to 2013 gives a complete insight into the connection between the use of disinfectants with occurrence and absence of intra-hospital infections. Prevention of intra-hospital infections is possible only by implementing standard processes and procedures that enable optimal use of properly selected disinfectants in all departments in hospitals. Special attention should be given to the procedures for preparing and delivering food to patients and the procedures for disinfection and control of space and food preparation, store and distribute food.
