Equipment Contamination: The Ageless Problem
Biological contamination is potentially everywhere in a hospital. Aggressive pathogens on environmental surfaces can remain viable for extended periods. High-touch, difficult-to-clean, mobile equipment and furniture are no exception. Despite the best efforts of the environmental services department, cleaners and chemicals are limited in their effectiveness.
