Hygienic hand disinfection

Hygienic hand disinfection refers to applying a sanitizer onto the hands in order to eliminate the transient (volatile) skin flora. For this purpose, approx. 3 ml of alcoholic preparation is placed in the palm of a dry hand and rubbed in for 30 seconds. According to the Robert Koch Institute, hygienic hand disinfection is considered to be the most effective single measure for interrupting chains of infection.
