The work of hygienists is part of the development of quality work to promote patient / client safety and the occupational safety of staff working within social welfare and healthcare services. We work with infectious disease physicians as well as various professional groups and units. In addition, we maintain a network of hospital hygiene officers.

Our responsibilities include the prevention of treatment-related infections and infectious diseases, prevention, information and the monitoring required by the Infectious Diseases Act through the infection register and various indicators. We maintain and update related guidelines and also instruct and train staff to use and apply the guidelines in practice. We work as experts in various teams and respond to various consultations related to hygiene. We actively maintain our own expertise through regular training.
