Checklist To Keeping A Medical Centre Sanitary

Posted On: July 17th, 2017 Author: Stephen Matthews

In this post, I am going to show you the medical centre cleaning checklist to keep your practice up to snuff by Clean Group Sydney. Keep reading.

A medical centre is where people go to recover from their illnesses and not pick up new ones. For this reason, medical centres will keep things as clean as possible so that they do not end up in hot water. Contracting with a regular cleaning service from Sydney will be able to create and maintain a checklist of things to increase the efficiency of medical centre cleaning.

Checklist To Keeping A Medical Centre Sanitary

The Bathroom

Obviously, the bathroom can be a hotbed for some nasty germs. Because of this, this part of the medical centre should be at the top of the checklist. Your janitorial staff will have to clean this area multiple times a day. Taking special care in cleaning the sinks, toilets, and restocking hygienic items is important to reduce the spread of disease. MRSA, in particular, is a bacterial infection that is commonly spread in hospitals through toilet seats so keeping them clean should be a priority.

Patient Bedrooms

A patient will be spending the vast majority of their time in their living spaces so it is critical to maintaining its cleanliness. Bedrooms that are shared are especially considered a health risk as a larger variety of bacteria and germs may be spread. Only hospital-grade disinfectant products are permissible to clean these areas as it is mandated by the FDA. The different edges of the bed should be the first areas to clean as it is likely to be the most touched. Tables, drawers, doors, and other items that are frequently touched will also need to be cleaned daily. When necessary, special deep cleansers are to be used on all sides of the mattress.

Examination Rooms

The medical equipment in exam rooms has all sorts of germs due to the frequent contact with patients. Medical instruments are cleaned by hand, and often by the operators themselves so that contamination isn’t easily spread between patients. Different areas of the room are also to be cleaned and inspected for bodily fluids and blood as it can be a contamination hazard. The operating tables, IV pumps, and other items are also to be cleaned on a daily basis. Only staff from qualified medical centre cleaning services are allowed to clean items in the examination rooms of a hospital.
