Medical Facility Cleaning
MEDICAL FACILITY CLEANING
Even before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare spaces required the highest level of disinfection. Cleanliness is critical for both sanitary purposes and infection prevention and control and is something patients expect.
The importance of combating HAIs
It’s estimated that 5% of all hospital admissions result in a healthcare-associated infection, accounting for approximately 722,000 infections, 75,000 deaths occur each year and an estimated $28–33 billion in excess costs.
HAIs happen when microorganisms like bacteria are transferred from the environment to a susceptible host in a variety of ways such as contaminated surfaces, equipment, or healthcare workers. While HAIs are severe, they can be avoided.
