Why healthcare cleaning education is needed
Health care environments where care is provided to large numbers of clients/patients/residents results in the contamination of surfaces and equipment with harmful microorganisms. Contaminated surfaces and equipment contribute to the transmission of microorganisms and to the burden of health care-associated infection.
Health care-associated infections affect 4% to 10% of patients in North America and results annually in nearly 90,000 deaths. The overall direct cost of HAIs to hospitals ranges from US$28 billion to 45 billion.
Maintaining a safe, clean and hygienic environment
Minimizing microbial contamination of surfaces, items and equipment within the healthcare environment is increasingly recognized as an essential approach to reducing the risk of health care-associated infections for all patients/residents/clients, visitors and staff within health care settings.
Reducing the risk of transmission of infection from the healthcare environment requires the cooperation of all staff in the health care setting. It also requires an appropriately staffed, trained, educated and supervised environmental services program. The cornerstone of efforts to reduce the risk of transmission of microorganisms from the environment requires the cleaning and disinfection of all surfaces and items in the health care setting on a regular basis.
Solutions for Healthcare
Routine, effective cleaning and disinfection of surfaces, items and equipment is an essential activity that protects clients/patients/residents, staff and visitors from infection. Because of the increased risks and consequences of infection transmission in this setting, the approach and intensity of cleaning required differs from that of non-health care settings.
CleanPHD helps healthcare facilities identify training requirements and develops custom eductation and digital solution which ensure a higher level of cleanliness is met and maintained.
