Housekeeping Operational Tools

Pro-Link has developed a number of tools that LTC facilities can use to improve their housekeeping program. Some of these tools include the following:

LTC Building Audit – The first step in understanding the effectiveness of a housekeeping program is a thorough building audit to identity what is currently being done effectively and where opportunities for improvement exist. Contact us using the form below if you are interested in a building audit.

Healthcare Acquired Infection Prevention Checklist – HAIs are becoming a more significant issue in LTC facilities; impacting residents' health, increasing unnecessary re-admissions and driving up costs. Pro-Link has developed a checklist that summarizes procedures and guidelines to help minimize HAIs.

LTC Specific Cleaning Procedures – How your staff cleans is just as important as what they clean with. We offer our customers cleaning procedures specifically developed for a long term care environment. They include procedures for a resident room, dining areas, bath and shower rooms and more. These simple to use procedures are pictorial and are available in English and Spanish. Click icon here for an example.

Quality Control and Budget Tracking – we offer a range of tools to help measure and track the quality of the cleaning operation as well as monitor spending.
