Each year healthcare associated infections (HCAIs) affect thousands of lives and cost healthcare systems billions of dollars. Proper cleaning and disinfection in healthcare environments are the key component in preventing the spread of infection and disease. However, in a 2012 environmental services report by UMF Corp states "many hospitals have found housekeeping an easy means of budget cutting, leaving housekeepers to simply dump trash and move on to the next room" and that "environmental services departments are, on average, short by five to nine full-time employees."
In addition, according to InfectionControl.tips, "the front line-workers charged with this main role remain the lowest paid and least educated worker group in the hospital." Infection control in facilities should be important to every employee, from top executives to front-line workers. By giving healthcare environmental service workers the proper education, tools, and resources on prevention and transmission of disease they will have the best practices to keep patients safe.
