Abstract

Nosocomial infections represent worry in great proportions for both staff and patients. Therefore, the occurrence of nosocomial infections give great emphasis on proper prevention which includes primarily the optimal use of disinfectants and antiseptics, and regular microbiological testing and controls. Antiseptics and disinfectants are widely used in hospitals and other medical facilities in different topical applications and hard surfaces. Mechanical cleaning before application of disinfectants is essential. Mechanisms of antibacterial disinfectants are summarized in several large critical reports worldwide. The purpose of this paper is to show the connection between the used disinfectants and antiseptics in the General hospital - Strumica, Republic of Macedonia for five years, from 2010 to 2014 and the possible occurrence of hospital infections.
