It is very common to choose the ideal disinfectant for medical use in medical institutions, which will be used as a low level disinfection of non-critical items. There is currently no peer-reviewed literature on this topic. Effective disinfection consists of two aspects, disinfectant and disinfection practice. Disinfection practice requires ensuring that disinfectants can touch all surfaces and training environmental health service personnel to follow the instructions on the manufacturer’s product label. The combination of disinfectant and disinfection practice 2 leads to effective surface disinfection. The following factors should be considered when choosing a disinfectant
Claimed microbicidal power: Can this disinfectant kill the most popular hospital pathogens? Including the pathogens that cause the most nosocomial infections? Which pathogens cause the most outbreaks of infection? What is your hospital most worried about? Kill time and stay wet on environmental surfaces: How long does it take disinfectant to kill the most popular pathogens in hospitals? Does the disinfectant stay wet on the surface for the length of time described on the label?
Safety: Is there an acceptable toxicity rating? Is there an acceptable flammability rating? Is there a minimum level of personal protection required? Is it compatible with the normal ambient surfaces of the hospital? Ease of use: is the smell acceptable? Is the warranty period acceptable? Whether the convenience of the product meets the requirements of the hospital (e.g., liquid, spray, rechargeable, disinfecting rags of different sizes).
