Medical facilities are held to higher standards than most commercial properties and have industry-wide regulations. This article goes into detail about what needs to be done when cleaning a clinic.
Is your clinic cleaned properly?
Your medical clinic must be properly sterilised and disinfected, in order to meet the G.M.P and T.G.A. Standards, as well as ISO 14644-1: Class 3 – Class 9 Fed. Std. 209E: Class 1 – Class 100,000. Achieving these standards requires thorough cleaning with proper equipment and chemicals. Otherwise, a clinic runs a risk to its patients and will not be able to operate effectively and safely.
What to Clean
High touch materials pass sickness on through the number of people that touch them, making them a key feature of the clinic to pay attention to. High touch materials include play equipment, doorknobs, handles and books.
1. Play Equipment
When it comes to play equipment, a medical facility should remove equipment that is old or difficult to clean. This includes blocks, dolls and soft toys. They should instead exchange them for books or electronic devices and provide a reminder to parents to keep their child entertained by bringing their own toys.
Doorknobs and handles should be cleaned several times a day if possible, as they are the most high-touch object in a medical facility and are therefore most prone to spreading bacterium.
Books and magazines should be disinfected as much as possible and discarded once they show signs of wear and tear.
Alongside high touch materials, floors should also be double mopped once a day.
