Covid strategies changing to long-term hygiene concepts in hospitals
Even if the infection risks of the covid pandemic are falling for the foreseeable future, “the measures undertaken have proven their worth. So there is no going back from the advances that have been made.” Christine Sasse comes to this conclusion in a statement for a specialist journal that deals with the consequences of coronavirus for hospital hygiene.
“Everyone involved has recognised that customers’, patients’ and their own employees’ feeling that they are well looked after and especially protected from risks will in future more than ever be the decider of competition,” says the Board Director of the Sasse Group, who is herself a doctor. She further assumes that there will be situational adaptations – “similar to how we react to severe weather warnings by taking appropriate precautionary measures.”
These will be required because after the pandemic, properties will once again begin to be visited more frequently. This will require a different intensity and arrangement of hygiene and cleaning concepts. “Here too, all the new knowledge will come in useful,” says Sasse.
