Dirt can sometimes hide in the most obvious places. Collaboration and teamwork are the norm in today’s modern offices, but as co-workers meet in crowded conference rooms and huddle over computers exchanging ideas, they’re also sharing something else, germs.
Even before the pandemic, unsanitary restroom conditions were bothersome and often included smelly odors, splattered surfaces, and no toilet paper or soap. The goal is often to get in and get out as quickly and with as little contact as possible. As visitation restrictions loosen and foot traffic increases in hospitals and healthcare facilities, the odds are stacking up for increased healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs). In fact, according to the National Library of Medicine, multiple research studies have found that poor cleaning of surfaces within health care facilities is a major source of HAIs because of the transmission of microorganisms, like MRSA
