Professional Cleaning Services Are Critical For Medical Facilities
When entering a hospital or other medical facility, patients have several expectations – quality medical attention, proper safety practices and a clean, sanitized environment.
Even before the pandemic, cleanliness has been a non-negotiable at hospitals, doctor’s offices, and other medical facilities.
Healthcare facilities, particularly hospitals, provide medical services like surgeries and care for all sorts of illnesses. As a result, if proper cleaning and sanitation processes are not maintained, disease, germs, and contamination could be spread. Staff is tending to the medical needs of the public, so these spaces must remain hygienic.
The pandemic has highlighted the importance of cleanliness in medical facilities.
With COVID-19 concerns still present, patients and guests should expect extensive measures to guarantee health and safety.
To ensure your hospital, clinic, or medical facility is clean, disinfected, and well maintained, it is imperative to rely on the experience and expertise of a professional company providing health care cleaning services.
Regular deep cleaning helps alleviate the uncertainty of the germs coming from patients and protects the well-being of those coming and out of your establishment.
Why Medical Facilities Require Special Attention
The nature of what happens at medical facilities makes it even more important to dedicate resources toward professional healthcare cleaning services.
Those seeking medical attention will have second thoughts about being treated at a facility that appears to be dirty and rundown.
Between operating rooms and waiting rooms, hospitals can be a hotbed for contamination. Patients are at risk for several hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) if proper sanitation measures are not a priority.
According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are a significant burden globally, with millions of patients affected each year.
These infections affect both high- and limited-resource healthcare settings, but in limited-resource settings, rates are approximately twice as high (15 out of every 100 patients versus 7 out of every 100 patients).”
Infections are easily spread from patients to staff to surface areas and so forth. As a result, hospitalized patients are more prone to infections versus those outpatients who come for short visits. And, as we have learned from the pandemic, immunocompromised patients are much more prone to infection.
Hospital Cleanliness Can Help Save Lives
How can hospitals, clinics, offices and other medical facilities protect the health and safety of their patients?
Medical experts agree that high-level facility cleaning services are a must.
Says the CDC, “It is well documented that environmental contamination in healthcare settings plays a role in the transmission of HAIs. Therefore, environmental cleaning is a fundamental intervention for infection prevention and control.”
According to a study published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health in 2016, “The cleaning of hard surfaces in hospital rooms is critical for reducing healthcare-associated infections. Several studies demonstrate that healthcare-associated pathogens frequently contaminate the patient environment, including both porous surfaces (such as curtains) and hard, nonporous surfaces (such as bed rails and medical equipment). Contaminated surfaces are a reservoir for transmission of pathogens directly through patient contact with the environment or indirectly through contamination of healthcare workers’ hands and gloves.”
Cleanliness is paramount in a healthcare environment. Appropriate actions need to be taken to ensure the well-being of patients, staff and guests.
