Exceptional housekeeping standards maintain good risk management via processes of efficient clinic cleaning
No good doctor worth his smelling salts is ever going to simply pick up the phone and call the so-called help to come in one morning and surreptitiously mop up, dust and vacuum at random. No, in his line, that simply will not do. Every meter of his surgery or doctor’s rooms, as it is also referred to, needs to be one hundred percent clean. The so-called hired help or any professional cleaner for that matter cannot be relied upon in this environment.
No, the good doctor relies heavily on the trusted services of the clinic cleaning services company’s dedicated cleaning staff. Indeed, on most days, they will be doing dusting, vacuuming and mopping. That will remain part and parcel of their practice of ensuring that their designated environments are left one hundred percent clean. What does this entail? It entails a spotlessly clean environment, for certain. More importantly, however, it means a clinically clean environment. It is a hygienically clean environment, completely and wholly free of every known disease or form of harmful bacteria known to humankind, if not that, at least the potential of it entering an environment that, to all intents and purposes, needs to remain a clinical one.
And for any critical diagnostic, surgery or research environment to be clinical it needs to be one hundred percent clean. No further explanation is required to emphasize this importance. Reassuringly for all good doctors and their dependent patients is that the dedicated cleaning staff will be professionally trained long before they are vetted and allowed to enter such environments. They qualify themselves as important stakeholders within the health services industry, always practicing what can best be described as a vocation.
