Who is responsible for cleaning the patient care environment and the equipment contained therein for an acute care facility? This question has been asked for years. Usually, the response is "housekeeping!" Not necessarily. So we have developed a comprehensive document that provides the answers to those questions.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define the roles and responsibilities of environmental cleaning.
  • Describe how roles and responsibilities for cleaning the patient and work environment are assigned.
  • Create a process that will ensure consistent standards for environmental cleaning.

Group Site License: Registration includes one internet connection and one telephone connection at one location and an unlimited number of participants from your organization in one listening room.
