Auditing the most recent, up to date cleaning standards

The new National standards for cleanliness in healthcare 2021 require hospitals and healthcare facilities to commit to a new Cleanliness Charter that promotes a consistent high standard of cleanliness.

Each healthcare facility is required to categorise their departments using new risk categories that are dependent on the function of the area.

These risk categories then dictate the cleaning frequencies for each functional area.

Each functional area is then required to display a star rating based on the cleanliness of the whole department.

✔Audit compliance by all 6 new Functional Area Risk Ratings as detailed in the National standards for Cleanliness in Healthcare
✔Track and monitor time to close issues identified during audit
✔Produce automated star rated certificates of cleanliness to display at department level
