Our mission is to partner with healthcare professionals to prevent the spread of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs). We do that by taking the lead on research and innovation, and by continuing to create advanced aseptic techniques in healthcare cleaning.
Healthcare-associated infections affect two million people annually, yet one third of those cases are considered preventable if proper infection control procedures are in place.
Aseptic Cleaning is unlike cleaning a standard work environment. True Building Maintenance personnel require proper training and education on critical and non-critical cleaning and disinfecting protocols, and must use advanced personal protective equipment (such as masks, gloves and gowns) while cleaning critical care areas where surfaces may be contaminated with infectious microorganisms.
Additionally, they must use proper Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-approved, hospital-grade cleaning and disinfectant products on all surfaces in any areas that may have become contaminated and must be cleaned and disinfected.
Terminal cleaning to immediately reduce microbial levels requires special attention to often overlooked, high-touch areas such as tables, phones, door handles, light switches, remote controls and computer keyboards, as well as to the top, front, sides, headboard, mattress, frame and side rails of patient beds. Terminal cleaning begins with the highest surface and cleans from the top down until every surface has been cleaned and disinfected.
Aseptic cleaning enhanced effectiveness due to the use of the advanced cleaning implements and chemistry technology available today including:
