"Why Is Properly Cleaning Healthcare Facilities So Important"

03 Apr 2024 12:03 PM | Denise Carrasquillo-Alicea

Maintaining a clean environment to health care facilities is very important to reduce the risk and exposure to germs, viruses, infections and diseases to everyone exposed such as visitors, patients and staff. OSHA has guidelines that all surfaces must be cleaned with an appropriate disinfectant determined by EPA to reduce Health Care Associated Infections. The most common infection associated with hospitals are urinary tract infections, bloodstream infections, surgical site infections, pneumonia, and diarrhea. 

Janitors/Cleaning staff are knowledgeable and trained on what cleaning detergent and disinfectant that is effective against both bacteria and viruses. You can find a listing on highly trained cleaning companies that specialize in health care cleaning at Janitorial Service Directory

Janitors are responsible for cleaning all zone areas such as restrooms, countertops, floors, equipment, high touch areas  and surfaces,and properly disposing trash and potentially hazardous waste and materials.
