At any healthcare facility, cleanliness needs to be the top priority. Not only does it help reduce the number of health and safety risks at your healthcare facility, it can be a major factor in patient retention and happiness as well as contributing to your overall financial success. Here is how to how find professionals dedicated to medical facility cleaning and how these professionals can benefit you in the long run.
All About the Patients
Whether you are a physical therapist, a dentist or a primary physician, your patient’s care is of the utmost importance. A welcoming atmosphere will encourage patients to return and will also confirm your skill and credibility in their eyes. When you view your practice through the eyes of a patient or potential patient then you will find more success. In some cases, certain offices will need to go through specific training to implement new procedures for cleaning.
Where to Start
To start it is important to create a plan based on your facility’s needs. Your janitorial staff and your employees need to come together and discuss the importance of any special cleaning that needs to be taken care of, and if any maintenance needs to be done. To create a comprehensive set of cleanliness expectations, make sure every employee is trained in the following:
- Standard precautions
- Infectious waste disposal
- Precautions for sharps (needles)
- Cross-contamination prevention
- Personal protective equipment
Think About Specialization
There are generic cleaning procedures that are designed for healthcare environments that maximize infection control. It may be a good idea to design your own cleaning procedures and tools to be able to control the process better. Make sure you are focusing on all areas of your office and making them a priority. For example, waiting rooms can collect many germs due to sick patients being there, so the rooms need constant decontamination. Nurse’s stations also collect germs and require frequent sanitization. Obviously, exam rooms and operating rooms are the most important areas of your healthcare facility to keep clean as patients come into contact with almost every surface.
