Urgent care and other health care facilities are required to maintain a clean and sanitized environment. Therefore, urgent and health care facilities must take a much different approach to cleaning the facility. Due to the frequent but inconsistent flow of patients and visitors, it can become a challenge to properly clean an urgent care facility. Baker Sandoval Cleaning will share our approach to urgent care and other health care facility cleaning and how a professional cleaning service can help maintain a clean and sanitized urgent care facility.
Custom Medical Facility Cleaning
Each urgent care center varies from each location as well as size of the building and type of patient traffic. When it comes to using a cleaning service to help maintain an urgent care center, it is important to be detailed in the need of the cleaning services. You will need to create your own cleaning program from the ground up. Along with creating your customized cleaning program, you also need to make sure your cleaning service understands the nature of an urgent care facility. Therefore, when creating your cleaning program consider few factors.
– Start by reviewing your patient traffic logs, along with hours of operation, and the size of the facility. Most urgent care facilities have 24 operating hours in a day. Since they don’t have closed hours where most cleaning services come and clean, you will want to find the slowest patient traffic times.
– All surface contact areas should be cleaned with disinfectants every day to keep bacteria, germs and viruses from infecting the staff, health care providers, visitors and patients. Floors also need to be cleaned and disinfected, along with waiting areas. All the furniture, patient rooms, and bathrooms require a detailed cleaning and disinfecting. Some areas may be more sensitive in nature and contamination may be an issue, especially, in medical storage areas. Make sure to give the cleaning service specific directions to avoid contaminating medical supplies if you request the area to be cleaned. Most cleaning companies that provide health care facility cleaning are certified and trained in blood-borne pathogen safety. However, make sure your cleaning company understands and knows about blood-borne safety while they are cleaning in an urgent care center. While creating your custom cleaning service needs, it is expected that you receive the basic cleaning services including window cleaning, surface areas and floor cleaning. Bathrooms and office areas also need servicing.
Communicate with the Cleaning Service
Urgent care centers each evolve over time and certain cleaning needs may need to be adjusted. Additionally, urgent care center may require emergency cleaning, depending on patient traffic. This is why the primary as well as the secondary urgent care management should maintain contact with their cleaning service providers. It is important to communicate with the facility’s cleaning service to make sure all adjustments are communicated and all needs met.
