English summary: Today, the effective management of hospital hygiene protocols management is an essential component of a high standard of quality in every area of a medical facility. Even within the context where the welfare of patients is certainly paramount, questions concerning economy and ecology still have a role to play in effective hygiene management, and part of such management is a hygiene plan derived from the facility-specific recommendations of experts, general standards and legal guidelines, which must be observed by all clinical workers as mandatory instructions.

Wenn auch in diesem Zusammenhang das Wohl des Patienten an erster Stelle steht, so treten zunehmend okonomische und okologische Fragen in den Vordergrund. Teil eines solchen Hygienemanagements ist ein Hygieneplan, der klinikspezifische Empfehlungen von Experten, allgemeine Standards und gesetzliche Vorgaben enthalt, die von allen Klinikmitarbeitern als verbindliche Handlungsanweisungen beachtet werden mussen. Das vorliegende Buch soll den Leser befahigen, anhand dieses Musters einen klinikeigenen Hygieneplan zu erstellen.
