The new site, mycleaningtasks.com, gives those in the world of Healthcare Cleaning and Domestics a first glimpse of the system and its benefits.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current threat of a resurgence along with other potential infection prevention needs, has demanded a more rigorous and robust cleaning operation to be in place in hospitals across the country, resulting in increased workload for those responsible for overseeing that the many tasks are completed, tracked and remain on schedule.
Working in partnership CHoICE Facilities Services at Sunderland Royal Hospital have helped GV Healthcare to develop, adapt and refine MyCleaning to create and establish a reactive task solution, which will assist with, and monitor, the huge increase in demand for frequent cleans and the development of a rigorous fogging / UV-C cleaning process.
Glen Robinson Hotel Services Manager, for CHoICE at Sunderland Royal Hospital said: “We have seen an additional need for infection cleaning of areas due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has risen significantly. This has added additional challenges on the Domestic team, and this was the ideal opportunity to look to develop a bespoke cleaning management software tool to monitor compliance and better manage cleaning demands. The GV Healthcare team have worked with us to design a solution for managing our reactive and fogging cleaning process via the MyCleaning software – this has allowed us to plan using the data it provides, showing us trends including number of cleans, infection types and time each clean takes, which has enabled us to be better informed of all the detail involving each cleaning task, which has enhanced planning and response times. We can now plan with a more detailed approach through having access to much more detailed information, thanks to the development of this system. We continue to work with the GV Healthcare team to adjust and refine this solution further, and are excited to share our experiences and the model with NHS colleagues.”
Within the last 12 months of developing the MyCleaning solution at Sunderland, a number of other hospitals have signed up to use the software to help their Cleaning and Domestics teams, joining a growing list of Trust’s GV Healthcare are building long-term partnerships with, helping them to simplify and improve their cleaning operations.
Richard Iveson of GV Healthcare said: “Much like the easy to use, rapid and reactive nature of our other solutions, we have been developing a tool for cleaning and are now ready to roll out a full launch of the MyCleaning solution. By listening hard and seeking real world feedback in the development stage, it has allowed us to create a bespoke solution for deep and reactive cleaning – a cleaning task management tool created in development with NHS experts who will be using the software, and built by software experts like us – this ensures it meets all of their requirements, does everything needed of it by the cleaning management teams and allows them to work in a way that is easy to use for all stakeholders.
We have built strong partnerships with many hospitals and these partnerships are the basis of everything we do; this allows us to develop software which we know will do all that is required of it by the user – these are bespoke tools, shaped by those that will use them, for those that will use them – we listen to the experts within the NHS and develop something that meets their needs”.
Numerous hospitals across the country are already doing healthcare cleaning the easy way – to find out more information on how the MyCleaning task management solution could benefit you and your team, the GV Healthcare team are always open and happy to have an informal chat.
