Many GP surgeries will be currently reviewing their cleaning procedures to re-open their practices to the general public. Whilst many practices will continue to offer telephone and video consultations, seeing patients physically offers the best method of access to patients that require medical advice and assistance.
With patient and staff safety being paramount and in line with the Care Quality Commissions (CQC’s) ongoing compliance monitoring system, issues are raised by the risks of a waiting room with potentially ill people waiting to be seen. This area carries a high risk for the spread of bacteria and viruses, along with consultation rooms where patients will come and go throughout the day.
With this in mind you will need to consider the way that you will implement a cleaning schedule, what this will include, and who will be responsible for ensuring that the practice is kept clean, hygienic and safe to ensure the safety of staff, patients and other visitors.
Doctors Surgery Cleaning requires skill and knowledge to be done correctly and well, every time.
- To assist providers in making sure that risks for infection are reduced significantly during the delivery of services
- To provide a good framework that will allow cleaning services to be arranged effectively.
- To make sure that the appropriate documentation is being provided that proves how medical processes are being managed.
- To emphasise that cleaning is a shared responsibility that does not just involve the cleaning team.
