How to Keep Your Residents Safe and Gain Their Loved Ones' Trust

Transitioning aging loved ones to a senior living facility is a life-changing decision that families don’t take lightly. As they begin to research options, prospective families may be exposed to internet resources full of information related to infection prevention. You may find yourself having to address the issue with families during initial contact.

One way to build resident families’ confidence that your facility is safe for their loved one, is to be transparent about the policies, protocols and products you use to provide safer resident care though environmental hygiene. Here are three things about the PerfectCLEAN® environmental hygiene microfiber system your facility administrators will be proud to point out to illustrate how you address infection prevention proactively:

1. The color-coded system is easy to understand.

Each of the PerfectCLEAN product lines comes in a variety of color options. The designated colors make it easy to distinguish which products are intended for use in resident rooms, bathrooms, gathering rooms, and common areas, reducing the risk of cross contamination between those rooms. An added bonus: The PerfectCLEAN true color-coded system is supported by numerous training programs including Operating Room turnover processing – practices and procedures, which received the AORN Seal of Recognition. A color-coded system paired with a recognized training program ensures your facility’s environmental services team has the tools and knowledge necessary to provide residents, visiting family members and caregivers with a safe and clean environment.

2. Your facility can accommodate each individual resident’s health needs.

Customized care includes the way you clean. When a resident has allergies or other chronic conditions, it may prohibit the use of some cleaning products in his or her room. All products in the PerfectCLEAN environmental cleaning system, including mops, wipers, and other cleaning products and accessories are made from micro-denier textiles that are designed to work hand-in-hand with any cleaning solution (including plain water) making it easy for your facility to address a specific resident health need while still adhering to safe cleaning protocols. The PerfectClean products’ micro-denier fibers are small enough to trap and remove small pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and c-diff spores, helping to remove most of the bioburden before any disinfecting is carried out.

3. The pathogen fighting process doesn’t end in the resident’s room.

All of the PerfectCLEAN products contain micro-denier textiles that reach into microscopic crevices to trap then remove contaminants. After use, the products can be laundered in any commercial laundry using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended levels of hypochlorite bleach to eliminate germs that were absorbed in the cleaning process.

Let the PerfectCLEAN Environmental Hygiene System meet your residents’ needs and put their families’ worries about a safe, clean environment to rest.
