Initial employs a fully holistic view to all elements that are required to build a best in class approach to hygiene to ensure a comfortable, pleasant safer environment for aged care residents
From specialist disinfection to ongoing surface hygiene solutions, protection of any tangible object that can be touched in the aged care living space is crucial to ensure the spread of harmful illnesses and germs is reduced.
Hand hygiene has never been more important. Accessibility to both staff and visiting guests to hand sanitisers and hand washing solutions is crucial to reduce the risk of touch transmission.
The world is facing an indoor air pollution crisis. The pandemic has only heightened the issue.
As aged care residents typically spend most of their time indoors, tackling indoor air pollution should be considered a critical hygiene responsibility. From VOCs to chemicals, viral aerosols to bacterias, it is imperative to shine a strong lens on the need to support natural ventilation with mechanical solutions that can help to clean and decontaminate the air, particularly during times of heightened risk of transmission or, where natural ventilation is not possible (in winter, or during bushfire season, for example).
In the aged care setting particularly, there is an expectation that more diligence on best practice hygiene standards is in place. It is expected that more scrutiny will be placed on just how clean and hygienic the washroom environment is - especially facilities provided for visitors / guests. . From odour control sanitary bins to hepa based air dryers, create a reassuring experience by ensuring that your washrooms do not compromise the perceived hygiene standards in place in your facility.
It is so important that the aged care sector has access to regular, dependable and agile clinical waste collection services. We recognise at times that unexpected increases can occur in clinical waste volume - such as during heighted sickness cycles for example. Initial Hygiene offers a responsible, flexible and ad hoc approach to clinical waste management and is licensed to dispose of waste materials responsibly and in accordance with local legislative guidelines
