Healthcare-associated infections – protecting personnel and patients

Prof. Mikael Zimmerman DDS, PhD

Going over some simple, effective, and crucial precautions to protect patients, personnel and surroundings from infections and methods on how implementing them.

Dental care providers have very delicate professional responsibilities – one of the most important infection control and prevention.
During this webinar, Dr Mikael Zimmerman will summarise and illustrate the main aspects of infection control and prevention techniques with the purpose of shedding light on key issues dental professionals face. Appropriate precautions and the methods in which these can be applied will be described.
Infection control and prevention measures commonly observed in the dental practice are safe and effective, however hygiene routines need to be known, understood, and strictly observed by the whole dental office team—especially since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Healthcare-associated infections (HCAI) cause tremendous additional costs, increase antibiotic resistance, jeopardize treatment outcomes, prolong patient suffering, decrease treatment capacity, and create ‘bad-will’ for healthcare providers. The care provider must make sure that all patients should be able to get dental care with the best possible quality, the greatest possible safety, and with as few side effects as possible.

All these facts leave no choice; appropriate infection control and prevention techniques must be implemented. This puts a lot of responsibility into the hands of the dental personnel
