Abstract

It is well known that the type and quantity of used disinfectant and the disinfection procedures is directly related to the effects of their use. The aim of this study was to review of the use of antiseptics and disinfectants in the region of Eastern Macedonia over five years period. The data were collected from hospitals in the region of eastern Macedonia (Strumica, Veles, Stip and Kavadarci). The results of microbiological testing conducted by the public health institutes in the cities were also collected and used knowing that the routine testing period for microbiological controls in hospitals was 15 days. The results indicated that the number of conditionally pathogenic bacteria is reduced starting from 2011. The reduction of the quantity of disinfectant used is also noted from 2011. The results obtained in all hospitals examined show similar situation in the region of eastern Macedonia. We will present the results obtained from Clinical Centre - Stip as the center of this region. The amount of disinfectants and antiseptics consumed comparing with the microbiological data indicates their rational utilization starting from 2011. Use of disinfectants according to the standardized procedures established by the IHI times allows current daily care. The knowledge about the current situation permits the staff to take proper precautions. It is pointed out the role of IHI times in the hospitals, as well as the role of hospital pharmacists.
