HYGIENE IS AN ESSENTIAL CHALLENGE

HYGIENE IS AN ESSENTIAL CHALLENGE

HEALTH IS A FUNDAMENTAL HUMAN RIGHT.

Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are a
major and growing problem. In Germany, hospital
infections cause 300% more deaths than
road traffic accidents.

More than 50 % of HAIs are avoidable.

Disinfecting hands is the single action with the
highest impact in the avoidance of
healthcare acquired infections.

An 18% increase in hand disinfection leads
to a reduction of infections with
resistant germs by 57% (i.e. MRSA).

MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS ARE FACED
WITH HIGH COSTS

An infection with an antimicrobial germ
prolongs a hospital stay by 4 days on
average and costs the clinic around € 9,000.

The G-DRG system does not
compensate hospitals for HAIs in order
to motivate quality-orientated medicine.

HYGNOVA’S PLACE IN THE VALUE CHAIN
OF MEDICAL INSTITUTIONS

HygNova’s technology lowers
costs by reducing the length
of hospital stays.
