Abstract

Introduction: The knowledge level, the attitude and the faith of personnel in charge of cleaning and disinfection affect the quality of surface cleaning and disinfection of objects in hospital directly. Our research purpose is to observe the effect of knowl- edge, attitude and practice (KAP) intervention on surface cleaning and disinfection of objects with high-frequency contact in neonatal ward.

Methods: The KAP intervention mode was adopted to conduct knowledge training, assessment and behavior cultivation on disinfectant workers. The fluorescence labeling method was adopted to monitor and compare the effects of workers’ surface clean- ing and disinfection of objects with high-frequency contact in wards before and after intervention.

Results: The fluorescence labeling clearance rate (91.2%) of object surface in the intervention group was significantly higher than that (79.6%) in the control group, and P value was less than 0.00.

Conclusions: KAP intervention measures can be used to improve the responsibility of disinfectant workers working in neonatal ward and make them master the standard disinfection knowledge, so as to improve the effect of surface cleaning and dis- infection of objects with high-frequency contact in neonatal ward.
