Gertie G.M. van Knippenberg-Gordebeke
Certified Expert Infection Prevention (retired)

From 1978-2005 I worked as infection control nurse in Dutch hospitals and in 2005 I started as independent international consultant/expert with interest, knowledge and experience of all aspects of infection prevention measures. 
Because of my global and local surveys, observations, education and promotion 
around bedpan management I am an regular invited guest-speaker, teacher and observer in healthcare settings universities and ministries of health. 
I gave more as 130 lectures during national and international conferences in 44 countries on all continents. Mostly combined with visits to regional hospitals where I observed the practice around the dirty utility rooms.
I am respected for my practical presentations and performance as ‘bedpan queen’ to promote basic infection prevention and safe handling of human waste.
