Unlike other commercial premises, it is crucial that doctors’ and dentist surgeries meet the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness to meet the standards of the Healthcare Inspectorate Wales (HIW). This organisation is responsible for inspecting, reviewing and investigating NHS services and independent healthcare services throughout Wales, including GP and dental surgeries. Consumers can visit the HIW website to find a report on their local surgeries if required.
Medical and dental practices in Wales fall under the HIW’s ongoing compliance monitoring system; and part of this compliance monitoring process relates to cleanliness and infection control within your practice.
What’s more, since the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, surgery practice managers need to be even more conscious of the daily cleaning regime to ensure all touch points and communal areas are cleaned to the highest possible standards.
Surgery Cleaning and JDK
Over the past few years, JDK Cleaning has developed a comprehensive cleaning process to ensure that all of our clients are fully compliant with HIW standards.
We now work with a number of surgeries across South West Wales as the preferred contract cleaning company. Why? Because our customer know that they will never be let down in the event of an HIW inspection.
We work with practice managers to agree and deliver a healthcare cleaning plan based on the NHS’s specifications for cleanliness in primary care medical and dental premises. This plan covers all functional areas and key elements within the practice to help prevent cross contamination and to control infection. This is why daily cleaning of clinical rooms and patient waiting rooms and toilet areas are essential.
We also ensure that all telephones and computer key boards are sanitised regularly and all floors are mopped property with no streaks or stains. Our cleaners always use colour coded cloths to clean different areas of your surgery, and pay extra attention to the hygiene standards in washrooms.
Our surgery cleaning service includes regular cleaning audits to ensure the agreed plan is being strictly followed, giving you peace of mind that the highest standards are maintained at all times.
