The Importance of Properly Cleaning Healthcare Facilities

03 Aug 2022 9:57 AM | Martha Wilson

In this day and age, maintaining a proper cleaning regiment in our health care facilities is crucial to stop the spread of infectious dieses. On a regular day, we potentially come in contact with numerous viruses and bacteria's that could really harm us. We never know when it happens and how it happens. As humans, we carry many different bacteria's, viruses, parasites and microorganisms, some are harmful and some are not. When the harmful ones makes us sick, we head straight to a health care facility to help us feel better.

Since we all depend on the health care system to make us feel better, it is imperative that we equip them with all the knowledge and equipment to stop the spread of the infection, protect themselves from becoming sick and most importantly how to stop the infection. Without the know how or the equipment, not only do the medical staff risk exposing themselves but everyone else as well. With that said, everyone should know how to properly clean the healthcare facilities. 

If we do not properly clean the healthcare facilities we risk the spread of any blood pathogens from patient to everyone else. Because we cannot see the bacteria's, viruses and microorganisms with the human eye, we have to make sure we are constantly disinfecting everything in between patients. We cannot take the chance that just because a patient does not seem sick that they are not sick. A simple sneeze can carry thousands of germs that may not have made you sick, but may make the little girl behind you sick. 

We depend on our health care facilities to not only make us feel better, but to save our lives and the lives of our loved ones. In order for them to do that, we need to make sure they are equipped with all the PPE's and chemicals to keep their facilities clean and us safe.
