Abstract

For prevention of nosocomical infection, hand disinfection is one of the most important factors. The objective of this study was to assess methods of hand disinfection. As some intresting findings were observed through this study, we would like to report on them in this paper.<BR>Twenty pediatric dentists washed and disinfected their hands under the conditions of not wearing rubber gloves and wearing. After washing the hands in the running water, using a cake of soap, disinfected them with 75% povidone-iodone andscrubbing the paper towel, they pressed then five right fingers on Brain Heart Infuusion agars and the agars were incubated in aerobically atomosphereat 37°C, for 48 h. As results, under the condition of not wearing the rubber gloves, microorganisms could not be eliminated with any methods, but when wearing them some dentists were able to eliminate microorganisms properly by washing in running water. Some dentists who wore larger gloves were not able to eliminate microorganisms using a cake of soap but all of the dentists were able to eliminate them by disinfecting with 75% povidone iodone. Based on these results we must use well fitting rubber gloves and disinfect ourhands.
