Take Airborne Precautions in your Winter Healthcare Cleaning

December 20th, 2019 · No Comments

This December in the Green Bay, WI, area, consider airborne precautions in your healthcare cleaning. Although most folks think about mopping or sweeping when it comes to cleaning healthcare facilities, it’s just as important to ensure that the air is kept clean!


Here are just a few ways to improve your overall healthcare cleaning through taking airborne precautions this time of year:


General Transmissions: Before taking airborne precautions in your healthcare cleaning, it’s important to first understand how bacteria are spread through the air. There are two common forms of transmission: the first is through evaporated droplets that contain living microorganisms, and the second is via dust particles that carry infectious materials.


Patients: Managing patients is another valuable airborne precaution to take during this time of year. If possible, encourage infectious patients to enter through a separate door, rather than through the public reception or waiting area. Additionally, make sure that each infectious patient wears a facemask to reduce the risk of spreading germs!


Waiting Rooms: What is the best way to ensure that infectious patients wear facemasks, if they do happen to pass through the waiting room or reception area? Provide the masks to incoming patients as they walk through the door. Additionally, within these public areas, post signs or posters informing patients about the importance of keeping on a facemask to prevent airborne germs from spreading, and the importance of putting on a new mask if the first one becomes wet.
