Healthcare Cleaning Services

Healthcare facilities are among the most demanding to maintain - especially clinics and hospitals. Academy has long been recognised for its expertise in caring for these environments. 

Infection control plays a significant role in healthcare cleaning services. Academy's infection control is about the prevention and control of infections through safe work practices, protocols, hand hygiene and cleaning procedures. Academy's procedures identify hazards and minimises the risk of infection.

Academy follows ACHS standards that include important aspects such as relevant codes of practice, statutory requirements and Australian Standards. (The mission of The Australian Council on Healthcare Standards (ACHS) is to promote, in cooperation with health care professionals, continuing improvement in the quality of care delivered to patients and the community by Australian health care organisations)

Academy's service plan establishes formal lines of communication, qualifications of personnel, equipment, staff training, safety, performance expectations, out of hours or emergency work and participation in any quality audit program.

Important quality issues addressed by Academy in managing and providing healthcare cleaning include:

  • Accountability
  • Risk management programs
  • Quality improvement and accreditation
  • Service specification
  • Training and education
  • Occupational health and safety responsibilities
  • Infection prevention and control
  • Infrastructure, maintenance and facility management
  • Auditing processes to measure outcomes.
  • New equipment purchases

Very high risk areas - critically important

The standard of cleanliness for areas in the very high risk category is of critical importance. Within these functional areas there is a very high risk of transmission of infection because patients are very susceptible and/or undergo procedures that can be highly invasive. Cleaning outcomes are achieved through the highest level of intensity and frequency of cleaning.
