Did you know that many infections are contracted after a patient is admitted into the hospital? Cleaning methods in a hospital should be the most stringent of any commercial building to prevent the spread of such infection.
A quality commercial cleaning company that specializes in hospital cleaning will ensure the safety and health of patients and staff, improve customer satisfaction, adhere to all regulatory safety requirements and provide cost-efficient solutions without sacrificing quality.
Jani-King has based their healthcare cleaning program on standards initiated by organizations such as the American Society for Healthcare Environmental Services (ASHES), Association for Professionals in Infection Prevention (APIC), Association of peri Operative Registered Nurses (AORN), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Training cleaning technicians is a high priority when it comes to hospital cleaning. All personnel that clean in a healthcare environment must go through rigorous training including classroom study and hands-on experience in the medical sector. All training is compliant with national regulatory requirements. This includes Occupational Safety and Health administration (O.S.H.A.) standards.
Hospital cleaning training includes aseptic cleaning, safety and security, protective equipment, disinfectant chemistry and education on the preventable causes of disease transmission.
A large company like Jani-King can offer more quality assurance services than smaller companies. With over 120 regional support offices worldwide and a local 24-hour operations team, Jani-King has the resources to ensure every hospital cleaning job is done right and that any conflicts are resolved quickly.
Franchise owners and their healthcare cleaning service staff must complete Jani-King’s Healthcare Cleaning Certificate Program and meet all Local, State, Federal and Joint Commission standards before starting work on any healthcare account.
Jani-King also provides a community awareness program, Clean Hands-Clean Surfaces, which educates patients, healthcare workers and the community about the importance of washing hands frequently and disinfecting surfaces daily.
As training and education continue, quality commercial cleaning services like Jani-King can help reduce Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI’s) and be an example that best practices can be complied with success.
