  1. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Introduction This manual was prepared as a training tool for employees of environmental services to educate employees on basic safety concepts and proper usage of Multi-Clean brand chemicals.

  2. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Introduction The purpose of cleaning is to remove unwanted contaminants from surfaces. The methods of cleaning and the chemical products used are more critical because they often have a dual function of removing soil and killing harmful pathogens.

  3. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Introduction In hospitals, some contaminants are disease causing micro-organisms invisible to the naked eye. In hospitals, the purpose of cleaning is to protect patients health and prevent the spread of disease by removing contaminants from surfaces.

  4. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Terms you should know Environmental Surfaces This term designates the surfaces that you will be cleaning in a hospital. This is a classification system for surfaces that carry a lower risk for disease transmission. There are 2 types of Environmental Surfaces: Housekeeping Surfaces Equipment* • Equipment is usually diagnostic equipment such as x-ray machines, CT scanners etc.

  5. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Terms you should know Housekeeping Surfaces • These are environmental surfaces that require regular cleaning including floors, walls, tabletops, fixtures, bedrails, etc. • There are two types of housekeeping surfaces you will be charged with cleaning. Each will have different methods and frequency of cleaning. • HIGH TOUCH Housekeeping Surfaces • MINIMAL HAND CONTACT Surfaces

  6. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Terms you should know HIGH TOUCH Surfaces Surfaces that are frequently touched by patients and staff that require more frequent cleaning. Examples: Doorknobs, bedrails, light switches, wall areas around toilets in patient rooms, edges of privacy curtains, etc. These surfaces must also be cleaned but not as frequently. Examples: Floors, walls, ceilings MINIMAL TOUCH Surfaces

  7. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Terms You Should Know Bloodborne Pathogens Special precautions have to be followed when dealing with materials contaminated with blood or other bodily fluids. Blood or other bodily fluids may contain disease causing micro-organisms (pathogens) that can be transmitted to others that come in direct contact. Your supervisor will provide more specific procedures for dealing with small spills of blood or other bodily fluids and/or specialized cleaning operations for larger volumes of bodily fluids that may need to be cleaned.

  8. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Bloodborne Pathogens Bloodborne Pathogens Act The Blood borne pathogens act was implemented to protect workers from potentially infectious diseases contracted from contaminated blood or other bodily fluids. Examples of Bloodborne pathogens: Hepatitis B Virus HIV-1 Virus (AIDS Virus)

  9. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Bloodborne Pathogens Bloodborne Pathogen Safety Precautions Always assume blood or bodily fluid spills are contaminated. To clean, first obtain proper personal protective equipment. Disposal of cleaning materials such as rags, sponges, paper toweling, absorbents, should be placed into a red Bio-hazard bag.

  10. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Bloodborne Pathogens Cleaning Up Bodily Fluid Spills Contaminated work surfaces and/or spills shall be decontaminated with an appropriate disinfectant. • Clean up gross filth by collecting with an absorbent material. • Spray surfaces with Microcide TB or properly diluted 256 Century Q. • Clean surface. • Re-apply Century Q 256, allow surface to remain wet for 10 minutes. Remember: Always wear personal protective gear and dispose of cleaning materials properly. Your supervisor will instruct you on specific procedures.

  11. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Protecting Yourself Safety – Working with Cleaning Products The Multi-Clean products you will be working with were developed to be safe as possible for the user. You should always use chemicals as directed and follow prescribed safety precautions. There are several places that you can look to determine appropriate safety equipment which includes container labels, secondary bottle labels and the MSDS. The MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET describes Possible hazards of each chemical and recommended safety precautions for using the products.

  12. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Protecting Yourself Safety – Working with Cleaning Products Safety Glasses: Safety glasses are usually worn when using any chemical product that is designated an IRRITANT or has a NFPA or HMIS rating of 1. Safety Goggles: Goggles protect the eyes from splashes of potentially CORROSIVE chemicals. Very few products, particularly in their diluted form would be corrosive. Gloves: Hand protection is usually suggested for use when cleaning with chemical products. Gloves not only protect hands from cleaning chemical exposure, they also prevent contact with soils, contaminants and potentially harmful bacteria.

  13. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Protecting Yourself Finding information about safe use of products The MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET describes possible hazards of each chemical and recommended safety precautions for using the products. A MSDS for each product used is available for you to review at any time. Material Safety Data Sheet

  14. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Protecting Yourself Finding information about safe use of products The container for each product identifies hazards of the chemical in it’s concentrated form. When using a dispensing system like the Multi-Task dilution control system, additional safety features are built in to the system. For instance, the “no chemical contact” seal on the container prevents accidental contact with the chemical. The locking cabinet prevents contact and / or tampering with the chemical concentrates. Color Coded Labels Number Codes Instructions for Use Health/Safety Precautions

  15. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Protecting Yourself Finding information about safe use of products Secondary Packaging Labels: When a product is diluted into another container for use, OSHA requires the contents are identified on the container. In addition, basic hazards of the diluted chemical should be disclosed.

  16. Multi-Clean Health Care Facilities Cleaning and Maintenance Protecting Patients Sick people can spread infectious viral and bacterial agents to others, they are also often more prone to contracting illnesses The spread of infections within a hospital is usually spread by person to person contact. Regular hand washing is essential to help prevent the spread of infection Infections can also be contracted by objects that are frequently touched by individuals. For the purposes of cleaning, these surfaces are referred to as “HIGH TOUCH’ surfaces and special emphasis is given to routine cleaning of these surfaces. ALWAYS wash hands before entering a patient room. Not only does this protect the patients, it also protects YOU! Wear the appropriate safety equipment that is recommended for use with each chemical product you may be using.
