Aspect #4: Location of Surfaces
Where surfaces are located matters. Different departments within the hospital require more focus on the types of surfaces being used. In a previous blog I outline some items that must be considered in the emergency department. Faced with a need to turn a room over quickly often means that healthcare workers with a primary responsibility for patient care must also clean, disinfect and turnover the room. It is entirely possible to use surfaces that can be easily and effectively disinfected.
