Clorox Healthcare develops cleaning tool kit
Terminal cleaning is the cleaning methodology deployed in a patient care area, room or space that occurs upon a patient's departure. This cleaning is meant to render the area safe and ready for the next patient's use. Terminal cleaning is advised for rooms where there has been MRSA, VRE, C. difficile, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter species and norovirus.
The Tool Kit includes terminal cleaning information and FAQs, key steps for dealing with HAIs and evidence-based research summaries illustrating the importance of terminal cleaning, the company said.
