CrestClean audits keep healthcare providers in good shape
Healthcare providers in Christchurch North have been given a clean bill of health by Liezl Foxcroft, who heads CrestClean’s Master Cleaners Training Institute.
Liezl visited CrestClean healthcare customers Christchurch Eye Surgery, Southern Eye Specialists, Forté Health Hospital and Oxford Women’s Health to carry out spot audits to ensure high standards of cleaning are being maintained.
“From the floor trap to dusting the overhead curtain rails, there is a lot of detail that must not be missed. The machinery is very delicate and extreme care must be taken when dusting and damp wiping the arms and bases of these,” says Liezl.
“I’m happy to report that the sites I visited were impeccable. The franchise teams definitely have a passion for cleaning these sites and every last detail is attended to. They miss nothing!”
CrestClean personnel undergo specialist training to service these high-risk sites, employing measures to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of infection.
“The teams follow strict Health and Safety protocols, including wearing full PPE, and as auditors we are briefed and escorted through each site, ensuring we touch nothing and follow the specified protocol in each space,” says Liezl.
The visits were also an opportunity to refine the Master Cleaners Training Institute’s healthcare training module.
“CrestClean’s motto has always been that we clean for health. Given the current focus on sanitisation, we thought it was timely to revise our healthcare training,” says Liezl.
“The teams already follow the correct procedures to prevent cross-contamination — cleaning from high to low and clean to dirty — but this was an opportunity to observe the finer points of what is required at specialist medical sites.”
Christchurch North Regional Manager Yasa Panagoda says CrestClean’s years of experience of providing cleaning services to the healthcare sector means medical facilities are in safe hands with CrestClean.
“Our teams are well-trained to provide a high-quality service, and audits add another layer of protection in an era where health and hygiene is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Well done to these teams for passing their audits with flying colours!”
