Medical Facilities and Offices
When attention to details means lives.
Kleane Kare's greatest attribute is the ability to solve our client’s biggest challenges. The most important component of cleaning medical facilities and offices is knowing how to identify and correctly clean the critical control points throughout your facility. The goal of the Kleane Kare Medical Cleaning Program is to facilitate and preserve a clean environment for your world--that world being patients, visitors and medical staff, while contributing to the reduction of Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs) through increased attention to efficient and effective surface hygiene. Performing regular applications of disinfectant throughout facilities and offices on all touch points: door handles, elevator punch keys, water fountains; paying special attention to restroom areas: flush valves, door handles on partitions and entry/exit doors, faucets, and sink handles.
The Importance of a Clean Medical Environment for Your World
- Telephones: 25,000 germs per square inch
- Elevator buttons: The first-floor button harbors the most bacteria and germs
- Water fountains: 2.7 million bacteria per square inch on the spigot
- Keyboards: More than 200 times as many bacteria as a toilet seat
- Bathrooms: One of the most bacteria-laden places of all - with fecal toxins on nearly every surface
The Kleane Kare Importance of Environmental Cleaning
With the spotlight on numerous infectious diseases in the U.S. and around the world, Kleane Kare has adopted a Specialized Medical Cleaning Program (also known as aseptic or terminal cleaning) as its standard of care. We recognize that one third of medical facility and office-associated infection cases are considered preventable if proper attention to detail and infection control procedures are in place.
The Kleane Kare Medical Program removes contamination from environmental and equipment surfaces in the environment of care in order to prevent the transmission of the microorganism from patient to patient, from patients to medical workers, and from patients to visitors.
How Medical Facilities and Offices Are Cleaned by Kleane Kare
Medical environments require a distinctive approach such as, careful surface area dusting and wiping, floor care, thorough restroom cleaning and trash removal. One-size-fits-all medical cleaning does not work. Some environments have lobbies and conference rooms that are frequently used by patients, visitors and medical staff; areas that are rarely used, such as unoccupied office space; glass that needs to be cleaned monthly; or special equipment that needs care.
