When should the Environment be Cleaned

Another Question and Answer

Q. When should the environment be cleaned and disinfected?

A. Housekeeping surfaces (e.g., floors, table tops) and other environmental surfaces should be cleaned and disinfected regularly, when spills occur, and when these surfaces are visibly dirty. Follow your facility’s schedules for routine cleaning and disinfection and for terminal cleaning of rooms when preparing the room for the next resident. Medical equipment that is shared between residents (e.g., blood pressure cuffs) should be disinfected between residents.
