Dr. Thomas W. Fengler at BVMed Hygieneforum 2015 on Nosocomial Infections.

    "Hospital hygiene remains a key challenge in the German health care system and will in the future play a major role in the quality measurement of clinics. The avoidance of hospital infections should not rely on individual actions, but use and implement bundling strategies. This was the consensus of the experts at the 4th BVMed Hygiene Forum "Prevention of Nosocomial Infections" on 2nd December 2015 in Berlin, with more than 100 participants."

    Our presentation dealt with KRINKO 2012 (a guideline on hygiene in the processing of medical devices). Quote from the press release of BVMed: "Fengler urged for greater simplicity and clarity of the recommendation and suggested to shift the focus on possible risks in part, for example on the subject of Tuberculosis. As a "central document preparation" the KRINKO 2012 had special significance. For this reason, he suggested republishing this important recommendation after didactic reduction."
