Medical Cleaning Services
Preventing cross contamination and the spread of infection is a pressing concern for all medical facilities. From doctors and nurses following the protocol for proper hand washing, to the daily cleaning services provided by the environmental services team we all play an important role in the health and welfare of patients, visitors and staff.
Hospital Acquired Infections affect millions of people annually, however many are considered preventable. SMS partners with Health Care Professionals to prevent and reduce the spread of Health Care Acquired Infections, HAI’s, through delivering cleaning services in accordance with industry best practices.
Medical cleaning requires special attention to often overlooked high touch areas such as remote controls, door handles, phones, bed rails, bed frames, headboards and light switches. Cleaning and disinfecting high touch areas reduces transmission of microorganisms. Following proper cleaning protocols can help to prevent the spread of infection from patient to patient, patient to healthcare staff and patient to visitors.
