surface disinfection

Procedure to reduce potentially harmful microorganisms on inanimate surfaces. Usually, the wipe method is used for surface disinfection; for surfaces difficult to reach, the “spray/wipe” procedure is also used. The Commission for Hospital Hygiene and Infectious Disease Prevention (KRINKO) at the Robert Koch-Institute distinguishes between two essential areas:

  1. routine disinfection
  2. targeted disinfection:
    – visible contamination
    terminal disinfection
    – outbreak situation
    – occurrence of certain pathogens
