Abstract [en]

The use of basic routines for hygiene in healthcare is essential to reduce the risk of spreading healthcare associated infections. The purpose of this study was to investigate the knowledge regarding infections and the transmission of infections and the knowledge of basic routines for hygiene. A quantitative descriptive study was conducted consisting of a questionary that was handed out during a day to healthcare workers in surgical and medical wards at Västmanland Hospital in Västerås. A total of 131 persons participated in the study. The results showed that the participants had a good education in the subjects of microbiology and infection control. The participants also reported that they at one or several occasions had received information regarding basic routines for hygiene. The result from the survey showed that the knowledge in these subjects was good among the respondents. However, only few of the respondents could correctly reiterate the content of the basic routines for hygiene. The other respondents were not completely sure about the content. Despite the good knowledge among the respondents there is always a risk of carelessness with routines for basic hygiene. Therefore, it is important to constantly work on the follow-up of routines for basic hygiene and education regarding infection transmission in health care.
