We currently follow the following specific advice from the office of the HSE chief clinical officer.
“Staff members who must enter a vacated room that was occupied by a COVID-19 confirm or suspected patient are at the very low risk of droplet exposure as there is no patient there to generate fresh droplets. This applies to staff who are cleaning the room or performing other tasks related the preparing the room for re-use. In that setting it is adequate for them to wear a disposable apron and gloves. Staff members who are engaged with cleaning or reprocessing of equipment used in the care if a COVID-19 patient or who handle laundry from a COVID-19 PATIENT, ARE not likely to be exposed to droplets and therefore it is adequate for them to wear a disposable apron and gloves and to perform hand hygiene when they remove the gloves and apron."
All services, repairs and decontamination are strictly scheduled with our customers.
