WHY HIRE MEDICAL FACILITY CLEANING SPECIALISTS?
Hiring medical facility cleaning specialists to manage the cleaning and disinfecting of your facility has many benefits. Companies that specialize in medical facility cleaning understand the strict cleaning and disinfecting requirements of the medical profession. They will ensure that your facility is cleaned to the standards expected by patients, staff, and regulating agencies.
One of the greatest concerns for a medical facility is the spread of germs. Patients, staff, and regulating bodies like CMS and HHS have high expectations when it comes to infection control. A professional cleaning crew that specializes in medical facility cleaning understands the importance of infection control and the pivotal role their cleaning and disinfecting procedures play.
Cleaning specialists are well versed in infection control protocols and procedures, understand the dangers of cross-contamination, and have policies and procedures in place to mitigate the spread of germs. They know how to clean, disinfect, sanitize, and even terminally clean any space in your facility.
Medical facilities are ripe with hazards not found in most other environments. Biological waste, hazardous materials, sharps, etc. are all hazards with which specialized medical facility cleaning crews are familiar. They understand and follow the procedures and protocols prescribed for the handling of these items.
In addition to the hazards specific to the medical profession, trained medical facility cleaning crews are also taught to mitigate hazards caused by the work they do. They follow OSHA safety guidelines, know how to handle cleaning chemicals and solutions safely, and are hyperaware of any safety hazard that their work may inadvertantly cause.
PATIENT PRIVACY AND DIGNITY
The privacy and dignity of patients in your medical facility is a major concern and cleaning contractors that specialize in medical facility cleaning train their staff in this important area. They understand patient dignity and privacy concerns and are discreet, respectful, compassionate, and professional when working within patient populations.
While not medical professionals, medical facility cleaning crews should be familiar with HIPPA and FERPA regulations and how they relate to the privacy and dignity of patient populations.
INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATIONS SKILLS
Medical facility cleaning providers must be able to work well in an environment made up of patients, visitors, and providers and must act with respect and professionalism toward all. Well-trained healthcare cleaning staff know how to do their work quickly, safely, and respectfully with minimal disruption to those around them.
Not everyone is cut out for these types of interactions and responsible healthcare cleaning services proactively train their staff to hone excellent interpersonal communication skills. A well-trained cleaning crew will have positive impacts on patients, visitors, and staff both through their cleaning expertise and their daily interactions.
CONSISTENT AND RIGOROUS CLEANING PROTOCOLS
Qualified medical facility cleaning providers have consistent and rigorous cleaning and disinfecting protocols that are specific to medical facilities. They provide regular training and education to medical facility cleaning staff and regularly evaluate their performance.
This ensures that your facility is cleaned to the highest standards each and every time.
