Cleaning Guidelines

Every healthcare facility should have written protocols to guide routine general cleaning and ensure that all areas of the environment are regularly cleaned to a satisfactory standard. Staff undertaking cleaning should follow agreed protocols and have access to adequate resources and equipment to achieve the required standard of cleaning. COSHH regulations should always be adhered to and staff should use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves at all times.
