Resumo

Objetivo: avaliar a presença de biofilme nas películas de smartphones de profissionais da saúde, investigar o padrão de uso e de descontaminação dos smartphones no ambiente de assistência à saúde em um hospital de médio porte. Métodos: estudo analítico e transversal, realizado com profissionais de saúde que possuíam smartphone. Foram realizadas entrevistas estruturadas e a presença de biofilme nas películas de vidro dos smartphones foi avaliada pela microscopia eletrônica de varredura. Resultados: todas as amostras de películas foram positivas para presença de biofilme, mesmo após descontaminação com álcool a 70%. Dos participantes, 96,4% utilizavam smartphone no ambiente de trabalho, a maioria utilizava o aparelho para fins pessoais e descontaminavam com álcool a 70% com frequência irregular. Conclusões: o smartphone pode servir como fômite, visto que biofilmes foram detectados na superfície das películas. Esses achados apontam para a necessidade de políticas de controle de infecção relacionadas ao uso dos smartphones.
