Proper cleaning and disinfection are critical to keeping patients safe from infection. However, Environmental Services (EVS) managers and staff deal with tough issues on a daily basis that create roadblocks to doing their job effectively. Topping the list of concerns: pressure to speed up room turns, unclear responsibility for who cleans mobile objects, high staff turnover, no standard cleaning practice and lack of knowledge about the role the environment plays in cross-contamination and transmission.
Tracking the problem
Clear-cut guidelines on how to solve surface contamination can be difficult to define. That’s why we’ve worked with experts nationwide to develop a comprehensive cleaning and disinfecting program. It combines process with disinfecting products and education to help prevent the spread of HAIs.
