Areas to be monitored


Establishing and monitoring an effective housekeeping plan in a hospital is a highly complex task which requires constant attention. Hospital staff should be frequently checked, informed and trained on appropriate hygiene and cleaning procedures. The following 3 steps are critical to housekeeping and ensuring a hygienic environment at all times:


Checking frequently used areas and surfaces


Frequently used areas such as, operating rooms, emergency rooms and intensive care units have to be routinely monitored by hospital administrators as to their cleaning status. These areas are at high-risk for contamination and should follow the required guidelines for cleaning.


Restocking supplies


Cleaning supplies, PPE and other necessary equipment should be frequently checked and appropriately restocked. Monitoring the stock of supplies is essential to the upkeep of hospital cleanness and safety.


Checking personal hand hygiene


Even the most essential and self-explanatory steps such as hand hygiene among staff members needs to be monitored regularly and corrected whenever necessary. It is important to remind staff of important guidelines and train new staff members to ensure safe procedures in all areas of the building.
