Covid-19: Cleaning of residents' rooms in a home
The Institute for Facility Management (IFM), together with stakeholders from the healthcare and cleaning industries, has created a standard for cleaning rooms in long-term institutions where the resident is affected by a Covid 19 infection.
The cleaning standard is intended to serve cleaning managers in old people's homes, nursing homes or institutions for people with disabilities and institutions for children and adolescents as an orientation aid and concretely applicable training material for health protection during the Covid 19 pandemic. This is because long-term institutions are often particularly hard hit by the coronavirus. Many nursing home residents must remain in isolation or quarantine as a result of suspected or confirmed Covid 19 infection. There are often fewer resources available for infection prevention than in a hospital. The document is illustrated with pictograms and is available free of charge.
