Kudos to Clare Rock and her team on this publication that guides us on the frequency and method of a fluorescent gel evaluation (FGE) of terminal room cleaning. A random selection of of three high touch surfaces in two separate rooms should accurately predict the cleaning practices on a given unit. The evaluation should be repeated, randomly, every 2 weeks.
This is a reasonable, effective and sustainable strategy for FGE of patient room cleaning.
I am off to Syracuse, NY for the rest of the week, for the 3rd annual Oneida High School Soccer Classic (previous event here) and my 30th high school reunion.
