Communities depend greatly on healthcare facilities, and trust proper hygiene is upheld to ensure appropriate conditions for the care of patients, especially the immune compromised.

Its important the proper procedures are followed while sanitizing healthcare facilities to minimize the risk of infections through contaminated surfaces and materials, in particular those which are frequently touched by patients or staff. Attention to detail is very important.
