Maintaining a clean and hygienic environment in a health care facility requires a more precise level of cleaning than a regular commercial space because of the special challenges these environments present.
These challenges revolve around issues such as liability, regulations, infection control, contamination, hazardous chemicals, sharps and waste disposal, to name a few.
Key points to consider in the care and cleaning of health care facilities:
Correct cleaning of a health care facility goes beyond just aesthetics: health care facilities are required to maintain a high level of cleanliness and hygiene in order to reduce the incidence of Health Associated Infections (HAI), which can be passed between patients, staff and visitors. It takes the right products and skill to properly clean and sanitise a health care facility.
The collection and disposal of medical waste must be handled, stored, packaged, labelled and transported appropriately to minimise the potential for contact with the waste and to reduce the risk to the environment. Knowledge and compliance of your state and local government Code of Practice and regulations in regards to medical waste disposal is imperative.
Specialised services are required for sensitive areas such as labs, examination rooms and operating rooms. Your cleaning team should be educated in the latest technologies and products designed for these environments.
Security and confidentiality are paramount and require special training and awareness. Cleaning staff must maintain confidentiality about the activities in health care facilities.
