Imagine stepping into a grimy, uncleaned hospital or medical clinic. Chances are you wouldn’t have too much confidence in the healthcare facility or even the medical staff trying to help you. Hospital cleaning is extremely important. That’s because hospitals and healthcare facilities are associated with cleanliness, trust and care. A clean environment promotes healing, but also offers a better place to work for everyone, creating a sense of synergy
When a healthcare facility is clean, patients are put at ease. When it’s not, your patients may distrust the staff, doubt the efficiency of the facility or hospital and even look for a different practitioner.
All commercial buildings should hold up to a standard of cleanliness, but hospitals and other healthcare facilities are in a league of their own. There’s no denying that the cleaning needs of medical buildings are unique from other institutions. With patient health at stake, and lives hanging in the balance, they demand an extra degree of attention.
Why We Clean
Surprising Facts About Hospital Cleaning
According to a study published in 2009, more than seventy five percent of all hospitals have received citations for serious sanitation and cleanliness violations.
With hospital cleaning staff overwhelmed and not properly trained, unsanitary rooms and wards have resulted – breeding grounds for germs to thrive.
Hospital-acquired infections are among the leading causes of preventable death today. 100,000 people in the US die every year from bugs they catch after hospitalization.
The old and very young are especially vulnerable because their immune systems have difficulty fighting off these powerful germs.
Clostridiuim difficile, a bacteria that causes colitis, diarrhea and other intestinal maladies is one of the most common preventable infections in hospitals and long-term care facilities.
Reducing hospital-acquired conditions by 40% would mean around 1.8 million fewer injuries to patients and could save more than sixty thousand lives.
1.6 million patients could recover without a germ related complication that requires another hospital stay
The health care system could save as much as $35 billion dollars
As you can see, your patients are correct to be concerned about a grimy hospital or clinic. Inefficient cleaning can lead to disease that would have been prevented by an effective clean, repeat hospitalization due to hospital-acquired conditions, and it causes your patients to doubt the professionalism of the facility.
