Contribution du pharmacien humanitaire dans une démarche qualité en hygiène hospitalière et biologie médicale au Centre Hospitalier Préfectoral de Kpalimé, région des plateaux, Togo

Abstract : Poor hospital hygiene practices are the cause of a high rate of healthcare associated infections (HAI), whereas in medical biology a lack of quality during the biological tests may result in wrong results and therefore, potentially, incorrect diagnoses and inappropriate treatments. It is in this context that almost 80% of the Kpalimé Hospital staff were made aware of the standard precautions (SP), basic measures to be taken in the prevention of HAI. As hand hygiene is a key part of SP, a study on the local manufacturing of hydro-alcoholic solution was submitted to the management in order to use it on a regular basis and at the least possible cost. At the biology laboratory, 100% of the staff were trained in respect of the quality standard ISO 15189:2012 and then in laboratory biosafety. The first official procedures have been written. All these actions have led to a quality approach both in hospital hygiene and medical biology; nevertheless, there is a lot to do before a satisfactory level of quality is reached. The constant involvement of the staff, in particular the management who is responsible for defining priorities and allocating both human and financial resources, should result in definite progress.
