Infections related to health care (HAI)

The risk of becoming infected in a health institution is greater, both for health personnel and for patients, since a contaminated patient can enter the institution at any time and contaminate the environment.

After the pandemic and what happened in the health sector, it was clearly understood that the protection of health personnel is vital, where preventive measures, clothing, prevention instruments, and safety play a very important role.

It is a new challenge that must be addressed, because as a result of the pandemic, many patients stopped going to health centers for routine check-ups of non-communicable diseases, for fear of contagion and even due to medical shortages caused by the casualties of the medical personnel due to Covid-19.

Here the challenge is the care of the community through the implementation of new procedures, in order to avoid suspensions of care services for disease control and likewise educate the community in order to improve habits.

COVID-19 definitely raised the gaze of the health system worldwide, which is why some issues such as those mentioned above are beginning to have more and more importance. This crisis could be just the beginning to have great advances in terms of health, if each of these challenges is overcome.
