Summary Report from Pilot of Patient Equipment and Environment Compliance Monitoring Tool 23 Apr 2015

The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of a devised compliance quality improvement monitoring tool for patient equipment/environment cleaning for NHS boards.

A tool was devised to:

  • monitor the outcome of standards of cleaning of patient equipment and the near patient environment;
  • be used by all disciplines of staff working to support a record of equipment/environment cleaning compliance monitoring within clinical areas/departments;
  • be used by the SCN/Departmental manager to assist with change management by addressing organisational re-occurring issues; and
  • provide a record of evidence for compliance with quality improvement for standards in decontamination for high risk patient equipment and the near patient environment on HEI inspection visits.
