Maintaining safety and health in hospitals: the importance of professional hygiene

Hospitals, specialized clinics, and retirement places are particularly sensitive environments when it comes to the spreading of bacteria and viruses.

As a matter of fact, hospitals have strict infection control protocols. These protocols, which have been intensified with the Covid-19 pandemic, include regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and equipment, as well as hand sanitizing practices for staff and visitors.

Cleaning refers to the process of removing dirt, dust, and other visible contaminants from instruments, surfaces, and floors. This can be done using specific detergents diluted in water.

Disinfection, on the other hand, is the process of killing germs on surfaces and instruments. This is usually done using chemicals such as chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, or quaternary ammonium compounds. Disinfection and sterilization are essential to ensure that medical and surgical instruments do not transmit infectious pathogens to patients.

To effectively clean and disinfect a hospital, it is important to follow a specific protocol. This typically involves:

  • Identifying high-contact surfaces and areas that are likely contaminated with germs.
  • Cleaning the areas with detergent and water and disinfecting with a chemical disinfectant. It is important that the disinfectant remains on the surfaces for the recommended contact time.
  • Drying the surfaces with a cloth, or even better, using professional cleaning machinery, such as floor scrubber-dryers.

It is also important to have proper training so that the hospital staff follows the protocol and uses appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) while cleaning and disinfecting.

These cleaning and disinfection protocols are essential in clinics and hospitals to ensure high levels of hygiene and safety for patients, workers, and visitors. Specific cleaning solutions are required for each area of the hospital, from small spaces to large areas, kitchens, offices, and even operating rooms. At TSM, we offer professional surface cleaning machinery such as vacuum cleaners, steam machines, scrubbers and sweepers, which provide the special cleaning necessary to prevent the spread of disease and virus.
