Surgical hygiene. Surgical nurse using a mop to clean the floor of an operating theatre after an operation. High standards of hospital hygiene and sterilisation are needed to prevent the spread of microbial infections. The internal tissues of the body, usually sterile, are exposed during an operation, and so infection is possible. Photographed in a cardiology operating theatre at the American Hospital of Paris, France.
