Bacterial Contamination of Anaesthetists' Hands by Personal Mobile Phones Used in the Operating Theatre

2014-08-27 03:40:53 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The use of mobile phones in the operating room (OR) has become widespread, because of the lack of reports on serious problems. Since mobile phones are used in close body contact and since, as for most non-medical electronic equipment, there are no cleaning guidelines that meet hospital standards, the hygiene risk involved in using mobile phones in the OR has not yet been determined.
