Training and Experience Come First In Hospital Cleaning
Jani-King knows hospital cleaning goes beyond the sanitizing and disinfecting of materials and equipment and to help with hospital cleanliness they have developed a program to increase awareness. Clean Hands-Clean Surfaces, is a community awareness program developed by Jani-King that educates on proper hand washing and how to appropriately disinfect surfaces. As awareness and education continue, trained hospital cleaning services will help to reduce healthcare associated infections (HAI’s). With support from the local community, Jani-King can help others follow the best practices in hospital cleaning which will save countless lives in the years to come.
Half of the battle against HAI’s (healthcare associated infections) is having a properly trained crew with experience in healthcare cleaning. Jani-King’s healthcare cleaning services go through an intense training program that provides them with all of the knowledge that is necessary to properly clean hospitals. In addition to hands-on experience in healthcare facilities Jani-King also includes written study materials that comply with national regulatory requirements. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (O.S.H.A.) standards are included in the required training for all Jani-King healthcare-cleaning professionals as well. In addition to the extensive education on healthcare cleaning, Jani-King also includes aseptic cleaning, safety and security with hazardous chemicals, protective equipment, disinfectant chemistry, and education on the preventable causes of disease transmission.
