There’s a reason why hospitals and clinics are decorated with white interiors. This aesthetic feature denotes cleanliness and implies sterility and is scientifically proven to give the effect of making patients feel reassured. From the painting on the walls to the doctors’ lab coats, everything inside of a healthcare facility is designed to look “clean.”
More importantly, clean hospital conditions are vital to the health of the patients and staff within. Among all major complications that occur during hospitalization, hospital-acquired infections account for more than 50 percent, according to HosptialAdministration.org. Studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that healthcare-associated infections contributed to 1.7 million infections and 99,000 deaths back in 2002.
For these reasons, it’s important that your healthcare facility has the best plan in place to mitigate the spreading of bacteria and ultimately prevent unnecessary disease. When you call on Continental, we understand that infection control is your number one priority, and that’s why our cleaning specialists receive ongoing training and use state-of-the-art healthcare cleaning equipment.
