When owning or managing a medical or health care facility, you would expect to have a professional and thorough cleaning service to help attend to the building’s cleaning needs. What if your janitorial or commercial cleaning service provides what some would call poor cleaning services? This doesn’t just reflect the facility’s quality of care and maintenance, but it can also be hazardous to patients as well as visitors and employees. Baker Sandoval Cleaning wants to help identify poor cleaning services and share why we will ensure professional and detailed cleaning services.
Preventing Hospital Acquired Infections
Low quality cleaning services in hospital and other health care facilities are often faced with HIA (Hospital Acquired Infections) outbreaks. Some of the worst HIA outbreaks that have occurred are C. Difficile and MRSA. HIA can occur when a patient goes to the hospital or health care facility to receive treatment or surgery. Both MRSA and C. Difficile can be very difficult to treat and most medications have little effect on HIA. This is why it is essential that health care facilities are properly cleaned.
UV Disinfection Robots
To help ensure that hospitals are properly cleaned, health care facilities are now using sanitizing robots. While this sounds like an amazing idea, essentially it is the initial cleaning that is still done by a cleaning crew. A cleaning service will enter the room and do a full cleaning and sanitize the room first and then they send in the robot. These robots use a UV light which is able to kill microorganisms to ensure all of the viruses, bacteria and other contaminates are properly removed.
Hospital Disinfection Procedures
However, HIA isn’t just contracted in patient rooms but has also been found on surface areas throughout the entire health care facility such as on banisters, doors, door handles, furniture and inside bathrooms. Due to the number of patients, visitors, and staff, HIAs are easily transmitted throughout the facility. When cleaning a health care facility it is important that a cleaning service understands the danger of neglect and does a thorough cleaning of the entire facility. All surface areas must be thoroughly disinfected to help prevent HIA. When a cleaning service comes into a health care facility or hospital, it is essential that they use all of the proper disinfectants and again, are thorough. If a cleaning service isn’t holding a certain standard, it is not only poor service, but dangerous. When a cleaning service isn’t using proper cleaning chemicals, or using proper cleaning tools or techniques, then the health care facility or hospital may be at risk. Not only from HIA but other germs and bacteria that can lead to illness such as colds and flus.
