Standards of Care Must Be Higher for Healthcare Cleaning in Facilities in Manchester, PA

November 29th, 2017 · No Comments

By federal law, all healthcare facilities are assessed for accreditation by the Joint Commission. The score given by the commission is critical because it correlates to the funding (Medicaid and Medicare) that facility receives. One of the provisions of the accreditation is a score on the healthcare facility’s “environment of care.” Broken down into more simple terms, all healthcare facilities must prove to the Joint Commission that they’re doing everything they can to keep their facility sparkling clean and free from germs and pathogens that can directly affect staff and patient health.

The requirements of the “environment of care” are much stricter than those for general cleaning for businesses or homes. Strict protocols and best practices are monitored and evaluated to keep everyone healthy and to make sure the facility gets a good score.
