PANDEMIC!

The scenario sends shivers down disease specialists\' spines:

Indonesia:Taxi driver develops a fever & dies

  • His wife grows ill & dies; so do his children
  • Victims of H5N1 influenza

Within 10 days:Many of his passengers also die

  • Virus found an efficient way to spread in humans
  • Spread by nasal & mouth secretions
pandemic3
PANDEMIC!

One unlucky passenger: a French businessman

First leg – Jakarta - Singapore:

Businessmaninfects:

  • Australian grandmother– sat next to him at airport
  • Swedish stewardess & Canadian coupleon plane.

Second Leg – Singapore to Paris:

He meets a:

  • Brazilian man when changing planes
  • Greek family on the plane
  • Spanish steward & Italian Stewardess

PANDEMIC!

All make it home

All die within days

  • First,they each pass it on to dozens of people
  • Beginning of a frightening chain of infections

Welcome to the global flu pandemic!

pandemic5
PANDEMIC!

A influenza pandemic struck today:

  • borders close (not effective!)
  • global economy shut down
  • international vaccine supplies & health-care systems overwhelmed
  • panic reigns
in the news1
In the News

OTTAWA - Jan. 28, 2005Dr. Earl Brown, an Ottawa viral geneticist,says Canada may not be as prepared for a flu pandemic as the WHO thinks it is.

  • Could kill thousands
  • Canada’s pandemic plan warns that
  • between 11,000 and 58,000 could die
  • 10.6 million Canadians could fall ill

“A clear strategy is a good start, but Canadians would be virtually defenseless if a pandemic were to strike” , says Dr. Brown.

flu notes
Flu Notes
  • Avian flu - death/cases rate about 50%
  • If seasonal influenza combines with H5N1
    • new strain spread easily & rapidly among humans
    • little or no immunity
  • Direct contact - sneezing or coughing - droplets
  • Indirect contact – shaking hands or touching contaminated surfaces
human to human
Human to Human?

JAKARTA, Indonesia –

The U.N. health agency described the deaths of six Indonesian family members from bird flu as the most important development in the spread of the virus since 2003, saying the size of the cluster and difficulties in determining the source were worrying.

pandemic certainties
Pandemic Certainties
  • It is coming
  • Very unlikely a vaccine until first wave past
  • Will not be able to control transmission
  • Will overwhelm our health care system
  • As with other disasters, good planning can provide effective mitigation
pandemic uncertainties
Pandemic Uncertainties
  • When will it happen?
  • How bad is it going to be? How many people will die?
  • How long will it take from when we know it is starting until people start to get sick?
what will it be like when it hits
What will it be like when it hits?
  • First wave last 6-9 weeks
  • 35-40% of people will be ill
    • Proportion of people needing hospital care/dying depends on virulence of strain
  • During peak (3 weeks), absenteeism = 25-35%
  • If disease is severe: borders will close, schools/public places will close
slide32
What is the role of good hygiene practices in prevention & containment of the disease?
  • Extremely important safety measure to prevent infection (Bio-security)

Should people get flu shots?

  • Personal decision everyone must make every year
  • Guidance of local health authorities should be followed
  • Different vaccines will become available
slide33
Which disinfectant should I use against avian influenza?
  • Soapy water & detergents are first choice for many items!!
    • Disinfectant cleaner also good
  • Avian influenza virus
    • Simpler to destroy than many viruses
    • Very sensitive to detergents
      • Destroys fat-containing outer layer of virus
      • Destroys ability to infect
slide35

Stop the Spread of Germs

ABSOLUTE NECESSITY:

  • NEW, NASTY BUGS DEVELOP EVERY DAY
  • EDUCATE OURSELVES
  • STAY CURRENT WITH LATEST DEVELOPMENTS
  • Reducing spread of germs essential to maintaining good health
    • Proper hygiene + good sanitation = 25% less absenteeism
slide36

Stop the Spread of Germs

ABSOLUTE NECESSITY

  • PROPER CLEANING PROCEDURES
      • Several different approaches
  • USE & UNDERSTAND DISINFECTANTS
      • Importance of dilution
      • Prevention of cross contamination
slide37

Stop the Spread of Germs

ABSOLUTE NECESSITY

  • NOT the TERMINOLOGY
      • Why worry about pronouncing words?
  • SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE
      • Aware of basics
slide38

YOU

ARE CRITICAL

TO PREVENTING THE SPREAD

OF DISEASE!

BASIC

BACTERIA

KNOWLEDGE

for our

everyday world

slide40

From an article on WebMD….

If you squirm at the thought of creepy germs ….. spend as little time as possible in restrooms of your workplace, not to mention those in restaurants, hotels & gas stations...

slide41

Dare to venture into a public bathroom?

Do you…

Push open with your elbows?

Flush with your shoe?

Crouch precariously above the toilet seat?

64% of us are afraid to touch anything; catching germs!

slide42

SPREADING DISEASE!

58%

of us

don’t wash our hands

after using washroom facilities!

slide43

ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY????

64% of us

Say

don’t wash our hands unless

ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY!

slide44

PERCEPTION OR REALITY?

  • 92%feltdirty washroom negative image of whole facility
  • 82% indicated “FOUL ODOURS” biggest turn off
  • 75% thought odours easy to eliminate
    • Couldn’t understand why staff could NOT get rid of them

Germs

  • live from 20 minutes up to 2 hours or more(cafeteria tables, doorknobs, desks)
  • Become spores which revive under right conditions
  • Survive extreme heat & cold
slide50
GERMS
  • Tiny, living things (micro-organisms)
  • Only seen with a microscope
  • Billions on skin or in body
  • MOST are harmless
slide51
Bacteria & Viruses
  • Two categories of germs
  • Cause contagious diseases

DISEASE GERMS: “PATHOGENS”

slide52
BACTERIA
  • Single cell
  • Live on own
    • Most harmless
    • Some beneficial
  • May produce toxins to poison body

Pathogens:

strep throat, pneumonia, tetanus, e-coli , legionella

E-COLI BACTERIA

STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS

slide53

GERMS & DISEASE

VIRUSES

  • 10 – 100 X smaller than bacteria
  • invade cell to multiply
  • reproduce until cell bursts
  • change normal chemical activity

Pathogens:

common cold, influenza, SARS, HIV, cold sores

HIV Bursts Cell

INFLUENZA VIRUS

GERMS & DISEASE

ON THE HEAD OF A PIN:

  • 1 - 10 MILLION BACTERIA
  • 10 MILLION - 1 BILLION VIRUSES
slide55
Which would be less hazardous to your health?

You touch your mouth after

1. Touching a toilet seat?

2. Touching a telephone or a desk?

slide56

Less Hazardous?

Office toilet seats = 49 germs per sq. in.

Desktops = 21,000 germs per sq. in.

Phones = 25,000 germs per sq. in.

Registering Disinfectants

VERY IMPORTANT FACTOR

Registered Product

  • D. I. N.

Drug

Identification

Number

  • Health Canada
  • - meets hospital criteria
  • P.C.P.

Pest

Control

Act

  • Agriculture Canada

- needs DIN for hospital use

  • E.P.A.

Environmental

Protection

Agency

  • Environmental Protection Agency

- meets US specs

slide68
Disinfectant Testing

DILUTION RATIO - Correct & Exact

  • Tested & Certified for 99.999 % kill of stated pathogens
  • Wet for 10 minutes
  • In contaminated water, not distilled
  • Hard & cold water
slide69

Using Disinfectants

YOU CAN’T KILL MORE THAN 100%!

We spend $$$$$$ developing correct dilution ratio for:

  • DETERGENCY
  • INFECTION CONTROL
slide70
WHY MIX STRONGER?
  • If we agree – you cannot kill more than 100%

Stronger dilutions project

a NEGATIVE image of you!

  • White film, streaks, sticky residue
      • Bacteria thrive in these conditions
      • Dirt magnet
  • Poor indoor air quality
  • Facility looks un-cleaned
slide71

Hand Mixing

Glug! Glug!

RESULT: (9 / 10)

3-5 oz when measured

Typical Hand Mixing

Object:

Pour 2 oz

into the bucket

slide72

Water Temperature

Lukewarm vs. Cold

  • Registered disinfectants tested in COLD water
  • Lukewarm feels better on the hands
  • NEVER use HOT
slide73

Using Disinfectants

FREQUENT SOLUTION CHANGES

  • PARTICULARLY IN WINTER
  • Prevent cross contamination
  • Increased kill
slide74

Cleaning, Disinfecting, Sanitizing

CLEANING & DISINFECTING

ARE NOT

THE SAME THING!

TO KEEP GERMS FROM

SPREADING YOU NEED TO DO BOTH

slide75

Cleaning, Disinfecting, Sanitizing

  • Cleaning:
  • VISIBLE dirt & human soils
    • Fingerprints, smudge marks
  • Disinfecting:
  • HIDDEN dirt, germs & bacteria
  • Only seen under microscope
slide76

Cleaning, Disinfecting, Sanitizing

DISINFECTING & SANITIZING

Are NOT

THE SAME THING!

slide77

DISINFECTING vs. SANITIZING

DISINFECT:

  • Registered product
  • Moist 5-10 minutes
  • Kills 99.999 % of STATED PATHOGENS

SANITIZE:

  • Moist for 60 seconds
  • Kills 99.99 % of germs
slide78
EXTREMELY IMPORTANT:

PREVENT CROSS CONTAMINATION

  • Studies: 30-40% of antibiotic resistant infections spread from hands of cleaning staff
  • SARS virus spread often caused by poor cleaning practices & personal hygiene
slide79

Restrooms:

Critical Disinfection / Sanitizing Points

Door Panels, Handles, Knobs

Mirrors

Flush Handles

Dispenser Handles

Taps

Counter Tops

slide80

HALLWAYS

Critical Disinfection / Sanitizing Points

Door handles, Glass above & below

Hand Rails & Banisters

Inside grasp-type handles

Stair Risers & Edges

slide81

WHAT MOTHER ALWAYS TOLD YOU

WASH YOUR HANDS

  • MOST WASH LESS THAN 10 SEC.
    • DON’T USE SOAP
  • 15-30 SECONDS REQUIRED
  • GOOD OLD SOAP & WATER
  • ANTI-MICROBIAL / ANTI-BACTERIA

“PEACE OF MIND”

slide82

How Disinfectants Work

QUATS: - now into 5th generation compounds

- Reduce surface tension in cell walls

- Attack the proteins in the bacteria

- Allow vital substances for growth of bacteria to leak out
