Module 2: Preventative measures

Cleaning protocols

Cleaning protocols

Cleaning is an important part of both standard and transmission-based precautions to achieve a basic level of infection prevention and control. Specific cleaning requirements will vary for each practice. However, all practices need a cleaning policy/procedure that includes:

  • routine, scheduled cleaning of all surfaces and equipment to reduce dust and dirt which can harbour microorganisms
  • unscheduled cleaning for blood, body fluid and other spills
  • enhanced cleaning and disinfection according to risk
  • cleaning/disinfecting of all high touch point areas after providing care for an infectious patient.
