Cleaning a medical facility, no matter how well-trained or experienced you are can sometimes be daunting. There are a lot of unique challenges that come with medical facility cleaning that only the best cleaning companies can address. It’s important to hire commercial cleaners in Melbourne who are qualified and have special experience working in medical facilities.

Orbit Cleaning Services Australia specialises in medical cleaning. We provide specialised cleaning services for Melbourne doctors, dentists, hospitals, retirement villages, and health clinics.

Cleaning for Medical Facilities

Workplace Protocol

Cleaning a medical facility is very different to school or office cleaning services in Melbourne. Due to their nature, medical facilities require the best and most thorough cleaning to ensure they are safe and sterile. Medical facilities have strict protocols and standards. Cleaning companies must be familiar with these guidelines to ensure that everything is properly cleaned.

Orbit Cleaning has years of experience cleaning medical facilities. We work with you to ensure any certification or inspection requirements are met.

Insufficient Cleaning

In most workplaces, a simple clean is enough to ensure the area is safe and healthy for staff and clients. For those, wiping over key surfaces and removing rubbish and other dirty items is fine. However, this approach is not suitable for cleaning a medical facility. The nature of these facilities can expose patients and staff to dangerous germs and dirt.

Patients in hospitals are not in their healthiest condition. Many patients will have compromised immune systems that increase their chances of getting an infection. It’s important for your medical facility to work with a cleaning company that understands the serious implications of mediocre cleaning.

Orbit Cleaning Services Australia understands the risks that medical staff and patients face every day. Our team has the specialist knowledge and experience to prevent these risks.

Health and Safety

Hospitals and medical facilities are full of sick people carrying germs and infections that can be easily transmitted to others. These are called microorganisms, which are invisible and can settle on every single surface in your facility. The most important points, however, are handrails, doorknobs or any surfaces that are constantly touched.

Orbit Cleaning pays special attention to these touch points to ensure they stay as clean as possible to avoid infection transmission. This is especially important to ensure the health and safety of visitors and cleaning staff. Our cleaning staff protects themselves by wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as latex gloves, a mask, goggles and a hairnet.

Medical Facility Cleaners

Patient Privacy

When cleaning non-medical facilities, cleaners will minimise interruptions to the working day. They will often close off certain sections or perform the clean after hours.

In a 24hr medical facility, however, this cannot be done. Closing off sections or working after hours is simply not possible. This ensures consistent delivery of care and protects patients’ privacy.

Patient privacy is perhaps one of the most important elements in any healthcare setting. Only authorised healthcare professionals can interact with patients. Although cleaners don’t necessarily interact with patients, they are entering the patient’s room to perform their cleaning duties. For many patients, this can be seen as an invasion of privacy.

Another issue that arises from this is data theft as cleaning requires moving equipment. While rare, incidents can happen and a cleaner can obtain patients’ data in several ways. Because of this, medical facilities are particularly strict about who enters their workplace.

Individual Healthcare Settings

Not all healthcare settings face the same challenges. Due to their nature, emergency units face a high risk of transmitting pathogens to other patients. Aged care facilities also face a higher risk of pathogens as it is difficult to ensure residents are following hygiene procedures.

Additionally, blood donation vehicles offer particularly unique challenges. These smaller, mobile settings are filled with technical equipment, chairs, and refrigerators. This makes it difficult to clean and sanitise every surface.
