Effective healthcare facility cleaning keeps infection prevention a top priority, according to an article on the FacilityCare website.
Best practices include:
• Providing routine formal training to educate staff on the difference between cleaning and disinfecting and how these processes impact the spread of infection.
• Using multipurpose products. Labels should indicate against what bacteria and viruses a multipurpose product or stand-alone disinfectant is effective.
• Paying added attention to high-touch surfaces that are often missed, such as door handles, sink faucets, food trays, countertops, chairs, tables and light switches
