Abstract

The healthcare setting is predisposed to harbor potential pathogens, which in turn can pose a great risk to patients.

Routine cleaning of the patient environment is critical to reduce the risk of hospital-acquired infections.

While many approaches to environmental cleaning exist, manual cleaning supplemented with ongoing assessment and feedback may be the most feasible for healthcare facilities with limited resources.
