Proper Cleaning Protocols for Healthcare Cleaning in Lancaster, PA

April 3rd, 2018 · No Comments

Imagine a scenario where a loved one goes into a healthcare facility and comes out sicker than when they went in. According to the CDC, 1 out of 20 people who enter a hospital come down with an infection that was caused by being in the hospital.

When sick people gather in one place, germs are an issue. Germs are passed on commonly used surfaces, beds, tables, chairs, and high touch areas such as doorknobs and faucets. Even with strict sanitation protocols in place, keeping areas completely sterile is a difficult task. That’s why healthcare cleaning in Lancaster, PA is such an important investment for your facility.

There are two crucial parts of cleaning a healthcare facility:

Thorough Cleaning:

Removal of all dirt and organic items, and cleaning and sanitizing all areas of the facility including bathrooms, breakrooms, and common areas. We use only safe, commercial grade cleaning items that create a sterile surface which keeps germs and pathogens from thriving.

Disinfection:

Removal of all pathogens and microorganisms that can cause infection. This is especially important in operating rooms and exam rooms. Our trained technicians use best practices for disinfection as mandated by the CDC and OSHA. Keeping these rooms clean reduces the chance of secondary infection and keeps your facility up to code with the Joint Commission Standards.

Our skilled team is trained to handle the cleaning of biomedical waster, bloodborne pathogens, as well as common areas of the facility that require more traditional cleaning needs. We provide:

  • Pre and post-surgery aseptic cleaning
  • Disinfecting all areas of the facility
  • Disinfecting doors
  • Disinfecting and cleaning floors

Keeping your healthcare facility clean isn’t just an important part of building maintenance, but also essential for maintaining the health of your patients.
