In addition to the ongoing threat of COVID-19, we have officially entered the flu season. What does that mean for medical facilities? Simply put, medical facilities can count on steady streams of flu victims and patients seeking the flu vaccine to prevent contracting and spreading the virus. As a building owner/manager, it is your responsibility to create a healthy environment in which patients and staff can truly feel safe.
Tackling Cold and Flu Season
Cold and flu season is upon us, spreading unpleasant symptoms like coughing and sneezing, nausea, and fever. It is no secret that medical facilities from doctors’ offices to hospitals are naturally full of germs. Practically every countertop and surface plays host to harmful impurities and should be sanitized frequently. In the end, promoting handwashing and the use of hand sanitizer is not quite enough to prevent the spread of illnesses. Only continuous disinfection and sanitizing plan will protect your facility and all its staff and patients. Get started today with the following tips.
If You are Sick, Simply Stay Home!
While there is a lot you can do to maintain a clean facility, it is also the responsibility of individual staff members to keep a distance when they are sick. While you might assume staying home when sick is “not an option,” think again. When you consider how many surfaces you encounter daily, it becomes clear that staying home will prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. From door handles to cabinets, faucets, and clipboards, the chance of leaving behind and picking up germs is massive.
While no medical office is 100% free of germs and harmful pathogens, the last thing you want to do is add to the number of impurities in the building. Pay attention to your health and symptoms daily. As they say, “An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.” As a medical employee, preventative containment is the only choice you have when presenting symptoms like a cough and fever.
Sanitize Your Personal Workspace Regularly
From your desk to your laptop, there are plenty of hard surfaces within a workplace that is capable of hosting bacteria and illness-causing germs. How often do you disinfect things like your keyboard, mouse, and clipboard? Frequently used elements in the doctor’s office require the most attention for preventing the spread of germs. As a medical professional, you should be sanitizing the whole of your workspace daily—there is no such thing as overkill.
From your eating area to your actual workspace, cold and flu season increases your chances of encountering harmful germs. Ideally, you should wipe your eating space both before and after lunch. Furthermore, it is not a bad idea to sanitize the rest of your work area multiple times daily to be safe. Luckily, thorough sanitation does not have to be complicated. Keeping disinfecting wipes are your desk makes it highly convenient to wipe everything down without even a thought.
