hygiene in practice

hygiene in practice is a movement for everyone who cares about clean and sterile working environments. By maintaining a high level of hygiene, healthcare professionals keep themselves and their patients safe and healthy.

On this hub, we accompany professionals with up-to-date research in the fields of hygiene, microbiology and epidemiology. We combine the science with practical guidelines, useful facts, and everyday experiences of healthcare professionals regarding protection and comfort issues.

Our mission is to simplify the change in thinking and acting to minimise infection rates.

As an international supplier of medical devices and hygiene products, Lohmann & Rauscher understands the needs of people who take care of patients. With hygiene in practice, we provide both information and solutions.
