Preventing HAI's

healthcare-cleaningHealthcare-associated infections affect over two million people yearly, yet one third of those cases are considered avoidable if proper infection control actions are in place. The goal of Progressive Building Services is to preserve a clean environment for patients, visitors and healthcare staff, while contributing to the reduction of HAIs through efficient and effective cleaning procedures.

Progressive Building Services knows the spread of organisms can happen three ways

  1. Caregiver-to-patient
  2. Environment-to-patient
  3. Patient-to-patient.

How we prevent the spread of organisms is through extensive robust training provided to our environmental technicians. Our environmental technicians know what areas that need to be cleaned thoroughly and frequently with hospital-grade cleaning and disinfectant products.

Whether it’s a hospital, outpatient facility, medical office building or surgery center, Progressive Building Services healthcare cleaning efforts ensures proper disinfecting and best practices that exceed the toughest healthcare cleaning standards and regulations. We are able to guarantee that our facilities will lead the nation in the reduction of HAI’s.
