Heidenheim/ Germany (ots) - Together with the "World Day for Patient Safety" of
the World Health Organization (WHO), today HARTMANN is launching its initiative
to reduce the risk of healthcare-related infection - Mission: Infection
Prevention (M: IP). The company is thereby putting an even stronger focus on one
of the greatest global health risks. In Europe alone, almost four million
infections are recorded in healthcare facilities every year. The current corona
pandemic is also a reminder of the impact infections can have on society.
Together with medical professionals and its customers, HARTMANN is now embarking
on a holistic mission to support healthcare facilities and raise public
awareness.

"HARTMANN offers a holistic program for infection prevention. The goal of
Mission: Infection Prevention is two-fold: educate healthcare professionals, and
improve the safety of the patients they work with. This ranges from individual
consultation in clinics and nursing homes, for example, to optimize processes
and interrupt risk chains, to public education to help make infection prevention
comprehensible," explains Thomas Haeni, Vice President of the Hospital-acquired
Infection Program at HARTMANN.

Program against hospital germs

Corona is currently the dominant topic in the healthcare sector. However, long
before the pandemic, so-called hospital germs, such as methicillin-resistant
Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), posed many challenges to healthcare facilities.
The follow-up costs of such infections in Europe amount to around seven billion
euros per year, not to mention the avoidable suffering of patients and the loss
of confidence in the healthcare system. "I personally know of a clinic which had
difficulty finding staff, because a previous germ outbreak severely damaged its
reputation, despite the fact that the hospital was otherwise considered
exemplary. Holistic prevention can save human lives and avoid subsequent costs,"
Thomas Haeni continues. Mission: Infection Prevention now focuses on the four
most common types of infection: ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), urinary
tract infections through catheters (CAUTI), postoperative wound infections
(SSI), and bloodstream infections through central venous catheters (CLABSI). Of
course, infectious diseases outside of hospitals are also considered: "The
classic flu or now COVID-19 are not only dangerous, but in many ways avoidable.
We will address this with our mission," reports Thomas Haeni.

Comprehensive and individual - M: IP combines both

A key element of the mission is the establishment of a content hub at
http://www.missioninfectionprevention.info . The digital platform offers
information, developments and tips on infection prevention in a bundled form.
The focus is on an outcome-based approach. In this context, HARTMANN can rely on
the know-how of its research facility, the Bode Science Center. "We offer
digital and semi-digital solutions for hygiene monitoring and process
optimization, tools for campaign design and disinfection planning, as well as
other aids to limit the risks of infection in a hospital, nursing home or
outpatient care center. We will also support our partners with training and
knowledge seminars (e.g. webinars) and, of course, offer product bundles
tailored to their needs," adds Thomas Haeni. "We will also be providing lots of
relevant information. Because you can only initiate changes and improvements if
you have the right knowledge. This is how we can best fulfill our role as
partner."
