The COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, confronting healthcare professionals around the world with unprecedented clinical and operational challenges. Preventing the spread of the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) within clinical settings is a particularly complex challenge; healthcare providers must not only treat infected patients suffering from COVID-19, but also prevent staff and other patients from becoming infected. One essential precautionary measure is to disinfect all medical equipment after the examination of an infected patient.
At Siemens Healthineers, we are working closely with our customers across the globe to ensure that they have access to the right products, solutions and insights to help them through this exceptionally difficult time. This website is part of this effort, offering specific recommendations and best practices designed to assist healthcare workers to prevent the spread of infection within clinical environments.
