Abstract


ABSTRACT

Objective: to describe the use of fluorescent markers to monitor surface cleaning and disinfection. Method: this is a bibliographical study, type integrative review, carried out from LILACS, MEDLINE and the SciELO virtual library. Portuguese, English and Spanish articles were included, without delimitation of period. From the critical analysis of the abstracts, ten (100%) articles were selected. The results were presented in the form of figures. Results: four (40%) were published in the year 2008. It is noteworthy that seven (70%) have the objective of evaluating and improving cleaning practices in several environments. Conclusion: new studies are suggested that demonstrate the impact of cleaning interventions with the patient's safety indicators, allowing an accurate indication of the gains to the patient. Descriptors: Fluorescent dyes; Disinfection; Hospital Cleaning Service; Quality management; Nursing Audit; Equipment Contamination. 

RESUMO

Objetivo: descrever o uso de marcadores fluorescentes para o monitoramento da limpeza e a desinfecção de superfícies. Método: trata-se de um estudo bibliográfico, tipo revisão integrativa, realizado a partir das bases de dados LILACS, MEDLINE e na biblioteca virtual SciELO. Incluiram-se artigos nas línguas portuguesa, inglesa e espanhola, sem delimitação de período. Selecionaram-se, a partir da análise crítica dos resumos, dez (100%) artigos. Apresentaram-se os resultados em forma de figuras. Resultados: relata-se, com relação à caracterização dos artigos analisados, que quatro (40%) foram publicados no ano de 2008. Nota-se que sete (70%) apresentam como objetivo avaliar e melhorar as práticas de limpeza em diversos ambientes. Conclusão: sugerem-se novos estudos que vislumbrem demostrar o impacto de intervenções na limpeza com os indicadores de segurança do paciente, permitindo apontar exatamente os ganhos ao paciente. Descritores: Corantes Fluorescentes; Desinfecção; Serviço Hospitalar de Limpeza; Gestão da Qualidade; Auditoria de Enfermagem; Contaminação de Equipamentos.
