INTRODUCING BIOSAN llOctober 5, 2020
COVID-19 is something we will all have to live with for the foreseeable future, and the cleaning and hygiene measures developed during the pandemic will become the new standard, rather than the exception.
Talented doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals rely on clean and hygienic facilities. That’s why good cleaning procedures and hygiene protocols have always been a key priority in health care.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown that current methods of cleaning, hygiene and PPE use were insufficient for coping with new threats. So, how have cleaning procedures changed and what will they look like in the ‘new normal’ of the post-COVID-19 world?
Simply increasing the frequency of cleaning and hygiene will add to cleaning costs and interfere with how staff and patients interact with the facility. Using the right cleaning products is paramount to prevent infection and save expense
Facilities also need to ensure they have adequate stocks of hygiene supplies, such as hand sanitiser, gloves, masks and other PPE. Education is only useful if visitors and staff have the resources on hand to implement acquired knowledge.
Effective facility cleaning and hygiene procedures will be undone if personal hygiene protocol isn’t followed. So, focusing on the latter will help ensure the success of the former.
