Hospital Room Cleaning-time Benchmarks

How long does it take to clean a hospital room? The answer is not as straightforward as first appears. Previous hospital room cleaning-time benchmarks have not been specific with regard to room type, cleaning procedure and whether isolation precautions were present. In this article we will outline how we determined benchmarks for the time needed to perform the cleaning and disinfection of hospital patient rooms. Hospital room cleaning-time benchmarks were developed for the terminal/discharge and daily routine cleaning of private, semiprivate and ward rooms without isolation precautions and when under isolation precautions.
