The use of hand wash, rub and disinfection is a habit that can help keep us all exposed to fewer germs, and therefore may decrease our chances of illness.

An Advanced technology in skin disinfectants with a broad-spectrum efficacy on all gram-negative and gram-positive organisms as is necessary.

Clean hands are the single most important factor in preventing the spread of pathogens and antibiotic resistance in healthcare settings. Hand hygiene reduces the incidence of healthcare associated infections. More widespread use of hand hygiene products that improve adherence to safe hand hygiene practices will promote patient safety and prevent infections.

The hands of personnel in medical facilities are the most important

carriers of pathogenic germs. Consequently, frequent and regular hand disinfection is essential in order to avoid transmission of infections.

Normal human hands/skin always harbor all kinds of microorganisms (102 and 106 CFU/cm2). These microorganisms transfer from the hands/skin to food, objects, or people and play an important role in the spread of many illnesses & diseases.

Cleaning, washing and disinfection should be done before and after between all patient examinations or procedures. Proper hand/skin care includes cleaning and disinfection. There is always the possibility of cross-contamination or exposure to unhealthy or non-intact skin existing, so cleaning and disinfection must be performed.

There must be adequate contact with the disinfectant to enable it to be effective. This time will vary according to the type of presence of inactivating or interfering factors such as excessive organic material and/or the presence of any microbial load.

The Zitriderm Hand Wash, Rub & Disinfectant is prepared for use in hand/skin is active in disinfecting, with rapid bactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal effectiveness against enveloped viruses such as hepatitis B virus, HIV, hepatitis C, Herpes simplex 1 & 2 as well as all non-enveloped viruses like rota and papova virus. It kills TB, MRSA, VRE, CRE HIV-1, staphyloccocus aureus, salmonella cholerasuis, pseudomonas aeruginosa, A type influenza, hong kong, escherichia coli (EHAC 0157) (pathogenic strain), and herpes simplex type 2 & many others.

Besides a safe and rapid disinfecting efficacy, we pay special attention to good skin tolerance. From the hygienic point of view and in terms of skin protection hand disinfection is the best way to reduce the microbial count on hands effectively without unnecessarily stressing the skin.

In daily healthcare practice, however, the frequent use of disinfectants is often held responsible for skin problems on hands, which is true, due to the common and frequent use of chemically prepared disinfectants, sanitizers, rubs, wash, etc.

The use of chemical hand disinfectants do lead to significant changes of the skin’s moisture or sebaceous matter, or could cause other adverse effects on the skin’s natural protective barrier.

Irritation potential can be observed, during long-term and continuous use of chemical disinfectants. Due to this, some hand disinfectants contain moisturising agents and humectants in order avoid a drying effect.
The risk of intolerances, especially for sensitised skin, increases with disinfectants containing a combination of chemical substances and preservatives as well as perfumes. From a toxicological point of view, some ingredients that are used as combination drug in alcoholic disinfectants are not justifiable for use.
The use of dye and fragrance containing products should not be carried out on health care facilities, and especially used in hands of healthcare providers, due to the increased allergy potential.

The importance of hand hygiene, to prevent and control Infection in hospitals: 



Human hands come into direct contact with everything and everyone, during any procedure, examination etc. Just by touch, enabling it to be a potential vehicle for the spread of nosocomial infections. 



This represents a significant cause of hospital acquired infections (HAI), also known as nosocomial infection, which is an infection whose development is favoured by a hospital environment.



The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the World Health Organization, and many other health experts promote hand hygiene as the single most important measure in the prevention of hospital-acquired infections. 



Several studies have shown the importance of proper hand hygiene in reducing the incidence of nosocomial infections.


All hospital superbugs can be eliminated with the use of Zitriderm are MRSA, VRE , CRE & many other evolving superbugs.



The most significant contaminations are found on the hands/skin, probably due to the lower level of decontamination practices prevalent in many places. Several studies reveal that, if any part of the skin is contaminated, then there is a risk of cross contamination. It is also revealed that there are high levels of contamination, such as S. Aureus (90% of which are methicillin-resistant), acinetobacter species, candida albicans and bacillus species.



Hand hygiene is described by many health care workers as the single most important tool in preventing the spread of health care-associated infections between patients and others.



According to the WHO, there are few definitive data on the patient-care activities that are most likely to transmit bacteria and other microorganisms to health care worker (HCW) hands, but there have been several studies that identified many possibilities. 



Although micro organisms have been found on HCW hands after patient examination, handling patient secretions and after so-called “clean” contact, such as taking a patient’s pulse, temperature or blood pressure and during many other patient care activities, microorganisms have been found on HCW hands..



Organisms found on HCW hands after such patient contact range from Klebsiella spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridium difficile, MRSA and gram-negative bacteria. 


However, direct patient contact is not the only way HCW hands can be contaminated. 


HCWs can acquire microorganisms on their hands by touching contaminated surfaces in the healthcare or patient environment and simply by touching a contaminated surface or a chart at the nurses’ station, according to the literature.



Washing hands before and after patient contact seems like a simple solution to prevent the spread of microorganisms between healthcare providers and patients. Most hospitals have hand hygiene policies in place that guide their employees to do just that. But it is not as simple as it seems.



When we look at all of the things that we can do to prevent infections in the hospital, one of the most important things about hand hygiene is that it works for so many different types of organisms. The issue is that we have to practice it at a high level of compliance for it to work. There are so many opportunities for hand hygiene, and it is difficult to get to a level of compliance where we are able to make changes to infection rates.



Often, even the most advanced health care will not work if clinicians and other workers neglect basic practices such as hand hygiene.



The five moments of hand hygiene are outlined by WHO: 

  1. Before patient contact; 
  2. before aseptic task; 
  3. after bodily fluid exposure; 
  4. after patient contact; 
  5. and after contact with patient surroundings.


HCWs do not realize that they are carrying pathogens on their hands because they cannot see them. Another reason is they can not link their contact with a patient, when pathogens may be transmitted from their contaminated hands, to an infection that may result days or even months later.



Many studies have shown that the principal reason HCWs do not wash their hands enough is because they are too busy, or there are not enough hand disinfectants available.



All healthcare facilities need to have policies that support hand hygiene. Hand hygiene is more important than ever with the rising threat of multidrug-resistant organisms. Antibiotic stewardship programs are powerful, but they are not going to be effective if we do not have good, solid infection control like hand hygiene.


The Difference Between Sanitizing and Disinfecting

In the cleaning industry, there are many misunderstandings about disinfectants and sanitizers. The terms are frequently interchanged in discussions, as many people believe they have the same meaning. Though they are similar, there are differences between sanitizing and disinfecting.

A disinfectant is a product that completely destroys all organisms. The organisms it kills are disease-causing bacteria and pathogens, and it may or may not kill viruses and fungi. From a legal standpoint (U.S Environmental Protection Agency guidelines), disinfectants must reduce the level of pathogenic bacteria by 99.99 percent during a time frame greater than 5 minutes but less than 10 minutes.

Disinfectants are products that destroy or inactivate germs and prevent them from growing. Disinfectants have no effect on dirt, soil, or dust.

A disinfectant eliminates or inactivates human-disease causing microorganisms or pathogens.

A sanitizer is a product that reduces the number of microorganisms to a safe level. It does not need to eliminate 100 percent of all organisms to be effective. Sanitizers do not kill viruses and fungi, and in a food-service situation, the sanitizer must reduce the bacteria count by 99.999 percent.

Sanitizers are used to reduce germs from surfaces but not totally get rid of them. Sanitizers reduce the germs from surfaces to levels that are considered safe.

If anyone is involved with cleaning food-service areas, then you will be in need of sanitizers.

But, if anyone is involved with cleaning medical facilities, then you will be in need of a good disinfectants.

Cleaners or detergents are products that are used to remove soil, dirt, dust, organic matter. They do not remove germs like bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
Cleaners or detergents work by washing the surface to lift dirt and other matters off surfaces so they can be rinsed away with water. The same thing happens when we wash our hands with soap and water.
Rinsing is an important part of the cleaning process.

ZITRIDERM been developed to proactively eliminate the incidences of microbial diseases which have become immune to chemical based alternatives in hospital and many other public environments.

The best method to kill or inactivate a microorganism, such as bacteria, fungi or a virus before it reaches a human cell is by using an effective antimicrobial agent, that is non-toxic to humans and animals, but toxic to any or all microorganisms.

The art of good cleaning has always revolved around a visibly clean environment.
Infection Control is a new method to remove, kill and prevent the things we cannot see. Bacteria and viruses and other microorganisms live among us in millions.

Unseen, and unnoticed until they enter our bodies and make us unwell, only then do we see the problem. In our modern society the bacteria and viruses have evolved much faster than mankind and as a result they have become immune to antibiotics, as seen in MRSA and other hospital-acquired infections.

Infection control in any hospital or health care setting / facility is a very vital and important discipline concerned with preventing / controlling NOSOCOMIAL and other healthcare associated infections / cross contamination, to the patients, attendants, visitors, doctors, nurses and all other technical and non-technical support staff who practically come in contact with any or all such risks.
