Is Your Healthcare Environment Cleaning Company Regularly Audited?

Healthcare Environment Cleaning Company When choosing a cleaning company for a medical environment, it is always good to be aware of the measures they take to maintain the correct cleaning standards for your surgery or healthcare setting to prevent cross-contamination and improve infection control. A good indicator of high standards and qualifications is that they will be a SAMSON Approved Contractor as required by the Royal College of Nursing. This qualification means that the cleaning service delivery has regular monitoring and audits, ensuring the standards are maintained and regulations followed.

Best Practices for Cleaning Dr Surgeries and Healthcare Settings in the UK

  1. Compliance with CQC Regulations: The CQC specific cleanliness and infection control standards that must be met within healthcare settings, including doctors’ surgeries. The standards include guidelines on cleaning frequencies, methods, and the cleaning products used.
  2. Tailored Cleaning Specifications: We work closely with each individual doctor’s surgery to create a tailored cleaning specification that meets their specific needs. This involves conducting an initial assessment of the premises to identify high-risk areas that require special attention, such as waiting rooms, consultation rooms, and restrooms.

This includes training in Infection Control techniques, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), DBS clearance and understanding the importance of preventing cross-contamination in medical environments.
  4. Cleaning Products: To meet the high standards expected in healthcare settings, we use cleaning products that are effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens.
  5. Attention to Detail: Practice Managers expect a high level of cleanliness and attention to detail in doctor’s surgeries. Albany Cleaning Solutions pays close attention to commonly overlooked areas such as light switches, door handles, chairs, and other high-touch surfaces that can harbour germs.
  6. Regular Quality Audits and Inspections: To maintain cleaning quality standards over time, it is imperative to conduct regular quality audits and inspections of cleaned areas. This can help identify any areas for improvement and ensure that the practice remains compliant.
