The article includes benchmarks for the daily routine cleaning of private, semiprivate and ward rooms without isolation precautions and when under isolation precautions

The cleaning times for patient rooms were assessed using an online survey. Environmental services managers supplied the time it took to perform daily routine cleaning and terminal/discharge cleaning procedures.

For all room types, the cleaning time significantly less when there were no isolation precautions. The differences with additional isolation precautions with and without C. difficile were not found to be statistically significant.
