Cleanliness of premises 'is top priority'
The cleanliness of premises in the healthcare sector is a top priority, according to the results of a new survey.
The second most important issue facing the industry is saving time and money, said those taking part in the online poll conducted by the blog site.
Some 69% of those taking part in the poll voted for cleanliness of premises, with 15% voting for saving time and money. Other key areas voted for were a commitment to the environment and more information about hygiene standards, which polled 8% each.
The blog site, run by Jigsaw Cleaning Systems, looks at key challenges facing the healthcare sector according to visitors to its site, which shares views regarding key issues in the healthcare cleaning industry.
Says James Blackhurst, managing director of Jigsaw Cleaning Systems: "We want to understand the most important issues in healthcare today. The need for cost effectiveness of cleaning and hygiene without compromising quality is changing the way the industry operates.
"The fact that a wide range of visitors to our site see cleanliness of premises as their priority confirms our understanding.
"Despite the need to save money, there are methods and technologies which enable us to meet the very highest standards of cleanliness."
Comments from those taking part in the poll highlighted how important they believe it is to improve the cleanliness levels of hospitals - in particular to minimise the spread of infections and viruses.
