HEALTHCARE CLEANING SOLUTIONS

While ensuring patient and resident care and satisfaction is naturally the top priority for healthcare providers, maintaining a clean, sterilised facility isn’t far behind on the priority list. Doctors, nurses, and aged care specialists simply cannot deliver the best possible healthcare if they’re practicing in a room that hasn’t been optimally cleaned or if a resident’s room gets contaminated.

Rubbermaid Commercial Products® understands the crucial role played by well-trained cleaning staff equipped with the best healthcare cleaning products in cleaning healthcare and aged care facilities. Rubbermaid remains dedicated to providing durable, high-quality healthcare cleaning solutions for facilities of all sizes.

The resulting assessment of the survey discovered:

Healthcare employees mostly carried out the cleaning of clinical areas in 57 per cent of responses. In these instances, 82 per cent of respondents said the facility had dedicated cleaners, while 14 per cent said nursing staff handled these duties, and 4 per cent had shared responsibility between nursing staff and dedicated cleaners. However, only 70 per cent of facilities reported training employees responsible for the cleaning and disinfection processes.

Meanwhile, an external contractor cleaned clinical areas in 34 per cent of responses, and 9 per cent had shared cleaning duties between nursing staff and outside cleaners.

The researchers concluded that both high- and low-income countries needed an appropriate and accessible reference standard for healthcare cleaning solutions.

The right healthcare cleaning supplies and products are crucial for cleaning facilities and maintaining rigorous infection control.

Healthcare Floor Cleaning

A regular mop and bucket doesn’t cut it for effectively cleaning the floors of a healthcare or aged care facility.

That’s why Rubbermaid designed the executive HYGEN™ Microfibre Charging Mop Bucket in conjunction with Rubbermaid HYGEN™ Microfibre Damp Mops and Quick-Connect tools. These provide healthcare cleaners with a “no touch” system that’s safe for use in MRI rooms. The charging bucket’s design prevents oversaturation of microfibre mops and reduces cross-transmission and contamination when swapping mops for different rooms.

The bucket also features a built-in measuring guide for cleaning and disinfecting solution that, when effectively used, allows for cost-effective supply management and more efficient cleaning of floors.
