Infection flora is defined as pathogens of already existing infections (abscesses, furuncle) that can only be killed by disinfection to a limited extent. Open, infected wounds always pose a risk of infection. Guidelines on personnel hygiene indicate that people with infections or open wounds must not carry out hygiene-relevant activities in patients until complete healing.
The A-to-Z database provides information on each pathogen, the most common infections that it triggers, its main transmission paths and recommendations on disinfection. In the glossary, you will find explanations of infection control terms. Search now!
