Ambulance Cleaning and Infection Control
The challenges that ambulance crews face in maintaining hygienic vehicles can not be underestimated. In addition to working long shifts, staff have an obligation to keep their work surfaces clean and hygienic to reduce the risk of cross infection.
Ambulance checklists and schedules for clinician crew go some way to help the day-to-day cleaning of emergency vehicles. However, not all ambulance crews have time or professional cleaning equipment for regular maintenance.
Cleaning and Disinfecting Ambulances
Visual cleanliness of ambulances can be achieved through wiping surfaces and using detergent, but micro-organisms often exist in moist environments which are hard to clean; for example, behind seats, work surfaces and within stretcher locking mechanisms. Bodily fluids present a high risk to the health and safety of ambulance staff and patients alike, with the risk of infection and exposure to diseases, it is vital that emergency vehicles are cleaned and disinfected to minimise this risk.
