Hospital Cleaning Standards
As waste is found in air, water, land, buildings and energy and hospitals have all of these elements in their environment, it is critical to have a documented process to ensure the hospital environment is clean and free of unwanted and in some cases, harmful substances.
Cleaning is the process used to achieve this clean hospital environment. Following a strong process puts unwanted substances in their proper place where they cannot cause harm or have adverse effects on staff, visitors or patients
The Cleaning Process.
We achieve the highest cleaning standards within our cleaning process by using the highest quality of equipment backed up by comprehensive training of our staff on how to use equipment correctly in every situation. Our staff know how to lead, manage and complete daily cleaning, spills, hazardous waste or any cleaning situation that may arise during the normal working day in a hospital.
The cleaning standards achieved are measured by internal and independent audits, with results shared with hospital management for their review and comments.
Our audits are designed to meet and exceed (HIQA) and Joint Commission International (JCI).
HIQA state their facility audits are; “to ensure there are established infection prevention measures in place”.
Our cleaning clearly supports that objective. Our staff leave no corner untouched when following our organised cleaning process based on scopes of work that follow best practice in cleaning. Research proves it and our staff know well that their work contributes directly to how patients, staff and visitors think about and feel about the hospital environment they are visiting or using.
