A proper cleaning program must be employed by hospital and janitorial staff in order to ensure proper disease remediation for the safety of employees, and most importantly of patients. A hospital or healthcare environment is unique in the respect that it houses people with compromised health, while also housing potentially deadly diseases and microbes in proximity, and often in the same room. It’s for this reason that hospital cleaning procedures and methods must be full-proof and carried out by qualified staff who can ensure satisfactory microbial and disease remediation.
Hospital Cleaning Process
Cleaning staff should wear barrier garments, such as face masks, gloves and gowns to prevent contact and subsequent contamination. Every applicable surface in the room should be disinfected with an EPA hospital-grade cleaner. In addition to counters, sinks, toilets and other apparent surfaces that need to be thoroughly disinfected, some more heavily trafficked items that need to be thoroughly disinfected are:
The entirety of the patient’s bed, including the headboard, side rails and mattress
The nurse-call device button and cord
The television remote
In some instances an electrostatic sprayer may be used for a high level of disinfection.
In the cleaning and hygiene industry, “electrostatic cleaning” actually refers to electrostatic disinfecting. While these terms are often used interchangeably, in reality they refer to two very different infection control processes. Electrostatics provide no mechanical cleaning action, i.e., they do not remove physical soil. Rather, the electrostatic device is used to disinfect mechanically pre-cleaned surfaces.
