Dialysis Center Cleaning

 

 

Every healthcare setting has to be on constant guard to prevent the transfer of infectious diseases and to protect patients, staff and visitors. However, by the very nature of the business, the dialysis setting has substantially more concerns. Renal care patients may carry bloodborne pathogens, and therefore pose a risk to others. They typically also have weakened immune systems and are more vulnerable to infection themselves. Therefore, it is crucial that your cleaning crew be aware of blood-borne pathogens and biohazardous waste disposal and be properly trained to clean a healthcare environment.

Infection Control

Renal patients have an increased risk of getting a Healthcare Acquired Infection (HAI) because the dialysis process requires the use of catheters or needles within patients who already have weakened immune systems. Microorganisms that can lead to MRSA, Hepatitis B and HIV can survive on ‘touch’ surfaces for extended periods of time. Therefore, any cleaning company you bring in to your dialysis center must be highly specialised to ensure that they comply with standard guidelines for infection control in healthcare environments, but in particular, the stringent guidelines for dialysis centres.
