Germs have a long lifespan and are highly prevalent in the hospitals, so it is important to keep equipment and surfaces clean to prevent the spread of bacteria to other patients. Surfaces including floors, chairs, beds, bed rails, door knobs, common use equipment etc. need to be kept clean at all times to keep them free of germs that can spread and infect other patients. Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces should be done using TIDDOX’s various disposable absorbent materials and disinfectants such as bleach. Washing hands and wearing gloves are also great preventative steps to controlling the cross contamination from one surface to another. After cleaning, rather than washing and reusing cleaning materials, it is better to throw away disposable cleaning products (and the germs with them!) and thoroughly wash your hands. Cost effective cleaning solutions for the healthcare industry is an area in which TIDDOX specialises. It is a growing area and increasingly more and more technology is being introduced to effectively reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria in the cleaning process.
