Beebe Healthcare has earned a Clean Facility Certificate from the Association for the Health Care Environment, the recognized authority in healthcare environmental services and a professional membership group of the American Hospital Association.
The association released the Pathways to Clean certificate program as a resource for members and the environmental services community at large in response to COVID-19.
Beebe completed the Pathways to Clean certificate program, which includes training and education content related to COVID-19, infection-prevention strategies, cleaning, disinfection, sanitation, emerging pathogens, and preparedness for biological events.
The healthcare system has affirmed its commitment to hospital-grade clean, and assuring patients, staff,and guests that their facility is hygienically clean and safe.
“Patients are already accustomed to the highest standard of safety and quality at all Beebe care sites,” said Dr. David A. Tam, Beebe Healthcare president and CEO. “The pandemic created a need for an innovative expansion on those efforts, which is why patients experienced many safety measures in place. The best part about these efforts and this certificate is that Team Beebe – and its tremendous environmental services staff – is committed to ongoing training and education to continue on our Pathways to Clean and being the best possible community health system for Sussex County.”
