Clinical and Laboratory Hygiene Services
Keeping a clinical and laboratory facility not just clean, but sanitary as well, is an absolute necessity. Whilst all businesses have strict regulations regarding ventilation air duct cleaning and maintenance, hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices and laboratories have their own standards that must be strictly adhered to for the health and safety of patients.
HTM 03-01 Compliance
In addition to the ventilation air duct cleaning regulations in place for all businesses, clinics and laboratories require additional cleaning to ensure the health and wellbeing of patients, as well as medical staff. HTM 03-01 applies only to ventilation systems that must perform above the standard requirements set forth. Not only do these systems have other needs, but the airflow must also be routed as specified, which can make cleaning more complicated. The HTM 03-01 regulations are designed to ensure these needs are met in neonatal units, operating theatres, containment level 3 and 4 laboratories, mortuary systems, imaging facilities, isolation units and more.
How We Can Help
When you turn to Hygenavent for your clinical and laboratory hygiene services, you can expect to work with qualified technicians who will be able to fully meet the expectations of HTM 03-01. The first step in the process is to complete an air quality testing. This testing will provide valuable information on the current air quality, including humidity, temperature and airborne and microbiology particles that may be in the air. We will also use video and photography, as well as other testing methods to determine the amount of surface microbiological substances that exists. More extensive testing will be completed in operation theatres, including air volumes, pressure differentials and air changes.
Once our initial assessment is complete, our experienced professionals will provide a plan detailing the required cleaning services, as well as carry out that plan to ensure the health and wellbeing of those who use the facility. Whilst air duct cleaning is our main priority, we can also provide a number of other services designed to keep medical facilities and laboratories as clean and sanitary as possible.
We can complete the deep cleaning of operation theatres using a low toxicity biocide that has been proven to eliminate virtually all recognised germs, such as MRSA, e-coli and Noro virus, all of which can be fatal for patients undergoing serious medical procedures. We send only our trained staff members to complete this important work.
In addition, we also provide the disinfection of hospital isolation rooms to prevent the spread of infectious diseases and the disinfection and fumigation of mortuary systems.
Each of these services is available to clinical and laboratory facilities to help promote a healthy environment and to ensure compliance with HTM 03-01.
