Background Patients have to be treated in safe and clean hospitals, their treatments being desihned to improve their general state. Only respecting strict hygenic rules we may achieve this goal.
Aim of the study was to improve the knowledge of all nurses and medical staff about the sanitary education rules as well as the fact that this has to be a constant part of our daily life.
Methods We have used a questionnaire composed of 17 questions, distributed at 120 healthcare professionals during 1st. June 2013- 31st. December 2013. All of them work at the Clinic Childrens Hospital, Brasov, Romania.
Results From all of the health professionals all of them answered the questionnaire and 97% consider it as being relevant for their education and work.
30% from all do promote on a regular base sanitary education. All of them work in departments with more than 20 beds or with chronic ill patients. 65% from the rest make scarcely sanitary education and these work in departments at which beds are overcrowded. These group are more centred on treatment rather than education. 84% inform the parents about the received treatment and ask informent consent from all patients. 70% of them recognise the fact that parents are very attentive at all the received advices.
