Don’t neglect soft surfaces in patient rooms, says study
Date: 10-10-2019


A patient’s room in a hospital contains a variety of hard and soft surfaces: walls, furniture, finishes, patient-care equipment, privacy curtains, bed linens and other sundry items. Studies show that facility executives in hospitals and healthcare facilities are more concerned with cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces, reports Clean Link.

According to the “Cleaning Costs and Frequencies Report” published by Contracting Profits and Facility Cleaning Decisions, 46 per cent of hospitals spec to have environmental service departments clean and disinfect hard surfaces multiple times a day. Another 46 per cent have these surfaces cleaned and disinfected daily.
