Bridget Gardner will be discussing a new model that could simplify the way cleaning standards are documented and measured, at the QLD Department of Health, Strategic Operational Services Forum, 3rd – 4th October 2018.
The Cleaning Activity Levels (CAL) model could simply the way we communicate environmental cleaning standards. It consists of five levels: each one describing a different degree of cleaning intensity and method of measuring its performance.
The CAL model is based on three principles:
- A surface cannot be accurately defined or measured as ‘partially clean’.
- The cleaning outcome is determined by the cleaning process.
- Cleaning standards should be defined by how cleanliness is to be measured.
Bridget will demonstrate how this simple model could be used in Healthcare to:
- simplify the way cleaning schedules are communicated,
- provide an auditing framework mapped to risk levels, and
- focus the efforts of cleaners more efficiently.
