New Report Demonstrates the Importance of Superior Healthcare Cleaning
It’s widely known that our hospitals and healthcare providers are under a huge amount of pressure to ensure their hygiene levels are second to none. Scrupulous cleaning of operating theatres, wards, medical instruments and even corridors are a basic necessity and a large proportion of healthcare providers budgets will be spent on it. Maintenance and cleaning of buildings and premises for the provision of healthcare is important both from a strict legal perspective and to minimise the risk to patients and staff. Healthcare facilities are places that can harbour bacteria and infections can be spread rapidly if not correctly taken care of.
Keeping healthcare facilities safe and clean
According to the European Cleaning Journal, research carried out in the US has found that another unexpected area of our hospitals could be adding to the risk of deadly bacteria transmission. Splashes on the sides of hospital sinks were found to harbour potentially harmful bacteria. Developing in drainpipes, the bacteria spreads to the sink strainers and can potentially be splashed around the sink and the surrounding surfaces where they can in turn, be easily transferred to patients.
This report further highlights how important high quality cleaning is for the healthcare sector. The cross contamination of bacteria in all areas of a healthcare facility must be avoided to ensure the safety and well-being of all staff and patients.
The European Cleaning Journal provides healthcare providers with up-to-date and current research on healthcare facilities cleaning and it is vital that we are all aware of changes to legislation and developments to ensure we offer continued safe and clean environments.
