Hospital Cleaning – Delivering The Highest Hygiene Standards
Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) have been big news in the media in recent years, with infections such as MRSA, C. difficile and the like representing a serious risk to patients, staff and visitors at healthcare facilities. As a result, infection prevention and control are key priorities for the NHS and private medical facilities alike. The provision of highly effective healthcare cleaning services is paramount to ensure risk of infection is reduced.
Control Infection in Hospitals with High Cleaning Standards
One of the key factors in the control of Healthcare Associated Infections is to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness are achieved and maintained throughout the healthcare premises. These types of infections can cause serious and sometimes fatal risks to individuals who come into contact with the diseases. Prevention is better than a cure so therefore ensuring infection does not happen in the first place should be a priority. In order for this to happen, cleaning standards should be correctly maintained. However, this requires specialist professional training and detailed knowledge.
Important factors of consideration when choosing a healthcare cleaning service
When choosing a cleaning partner for a healthcare environment there are several areas in which the selected partner should be able to demonstrate their knowledge and experience. These include:
- using the correct protective equipment
- safety and security
- aseptic cleaning
- disinfectant chemistry
- preventable causes of disease transmission
- abide by Care Quality Commission (CQC) standards to ensure the highest level of cleaning service is delivered.
Healthcare cleaning professionals should also be able to display proficiency in the use of correct cleaning systems and cleaning materials while also be able to handle cleaning equipment and storage in the right manner to follow rules and regulations.
