The Universal Appeal of Clean Sheets

Ever check into a hotel room, possibly after a long day of travel or work in a town far from home, only to find that your sheets are dirty and you don’t have any clean towels? Outrageous, right? You probably called the front desk before you even tried to get comfortable. You might have even started looking at other hotel options. Because who can get comfortable when you find the place you’re supposed to spend the night in can’t follow simple and universal hygiene protocols?

Now imagine discovering the same shocking lack of attention to cleanliness in a place that’s supposed to be addressing your health care needs. And now we’re talking not just the sheets on the exam or massage table but the bibs you have to wear while in the dentist’s chair, the containers used to store medical waste, and even the state of the waiting room. There are dozens of things in a medical facility that could immediately turn you off to the business if not maintained to the highest standard.

You don’t have to be in the hospitality industry to know that cleanliness is desirable to consumers. In the healthcare world, it’s not only preferred but actually a regulated necessity. When proper hygiene isn’t effectively maintained, it’s more than just the client’s impression that can be adversely affected. It can lead to poor patient outcomes and trouble with regulatory agencies.

The average patient may not know the exact specifications required for cleanliness in a facility, but at this point in human history, we are all well aware of how keeping things clean is important for good health. In no place is this more obvious than in a business whose main goal is improving the health of its customers.

Cleaner environments lead to better patient outcomes. It’s an important part of managing patient safety. Whether you’re providing x-ray services or cataract surgery, you know that maintaining a hygienic environment is not just good for business, it’s good for the health of your customers.
