Importance of cleaning in hospitals?

Patients, staff, and visitors entering healthcare centres carry bacteria, viruses, and other microbes. Hence medical centre cleaning and disinfecting are the most important step in preventing the spread of infectious disease in healthcare facilities. The aspect of hospital and medical centre cleaning is similar to that of an office building or hotel. In some areas of the hospital, disinfectants are used to reduce the risk of infection. Medical centre cleaning and disinfecting is generally defined as reducing the number of microbes on a surface to very low levels.

Ultimately, waiting areas often need cleaning only; patient rooms need cleaning and low level disinfecting and surgical suites require high-level disinfection and sterilization of instruments. This increases the use of pesticides. Staff and patientís exposure risk and possibility for scattering antimicrobial resistance also increases. The immune systems of the patients are generally very weak. So, medical centre cleaning is very much essential.

Without systems in place for selecting and purchasing cleaning chemicals a facility may have multiple chemicals in use. Multiple chemical products in use are costly and make it complicated to manage in terms of safety, suitable training, communication hazards, security, and waste management. Medical centre cleaning and disinfecting aptly helps healthcare facilities ensure satisfactory prevention of infections reducing cleaning period, minimizing patient and staff exposures to toxic chemicals, and reducing procurement costs.
