Don't know what other hospitals do, but R. D. & E. spend a lot of time cleaning ... including once a year the whole hospital is "bombed" ... it's done ward by ward, with everyone being moved to a spare ward ... leaving an empty one. Then 4 days of cleaning ... then we return patients to the original ward!

A complete muddle today - and this is what a section of ward looks like without patients!

2011 - 151 

The missing beds are returned so they can be cleaned, as well.  After I took this photo I went round collecting up cups, oxygen tubes etc for rubbish and/or re-cylcling.

I don't think hospital do this in the USA. They have cleaning crews who clean, but I don't know if they "bomb" them. Most public places have someone who comes in and sprays for creepy crawlies.

We clean each bed area when a patient leaves and if they had an infection, or MRSA or something then they are "deap-cleaned" by Housekeeping Staff ... then this once a year, empty and thoroughly clean an area.

Each day the Housekeepers clean, and we clean when we have spare time... hopefully not to spread infections.

Haven't spotted any creepy crawlies, so far ... well, other than a couple of other staff members!!!
