2. Despite modern technology, hygiene in health care is an essential factor

Hygiene in the treatment of patients makes high demands on the staff. Of course, the observance of hygiene rules is not only mandatory, but financially very useful because of the re-treatment of patients is more expensive than the investment in state of the art hygiene. Although many health establishments today usually allowed to work for profit, human being in all economic considerations shall not be neglected.

A general trend of outpatient treatment in hospitals is recorded towards group practices and outpatient clinics. Thus legislation gives the outpatient treatment a priority over inpatient treatment according to §39 Lit. 1 sentence 2 SGB V, which for cost reduction reasons according to BSG Urt.v.15.03.1995-6RKa 23/94-NZS 1996.90 deemed admissible. Thus, deliberately ensured that ambulatory health care by physicians in private practice in clinics, group practices, or so-called. MVZs short “MVZ” is rendered.

and in practice, a hygiene officer, hereinafter also referred to as “HB”, who shall support the management and/or the practice owner to implement, enforce and control  the hygiene regime. These HB need respective education for their activities, which shall be performed in accordance with the guidelines of the VHD.
