Frank Myers, MA, CIC, FAPIC // Interim Director Infection Prevention & Clinical Epidemiology at UC San Diego Health
When you enter a hotel room, the bed is made, the toiletries are unopened, and fresh towels are ready for you. We know housekeeping cleans each room after every guest, but what does that include? And how does this compare to the job of Environmental Services in healthcare settings? In this episode, we want to use the concept of “hotel clean vs. hospital clean” to remind members of the public and healthcare workers why we focus in on certain types of cleanliness, particularly in healthcare.
