Covid-19 Cross Contamination Risk From Maintenance Teams Tools

PPE combined with disinfecting hands with antimicrobial wipes or hand washes between wards is a well-established protocol that has been undeniably a very effective measure in combating Covid-19. However, the decontamination of tradesman tools as they transfer and work between wards, rooms or buildings is often overlooked and the level of risk often under-considered, within some case no protocols in place at all.

Imagine the risk involved in a tradesman working in high bacterial load areas such as toilets or bathrooms then moving to work repairing a basin tap on a high dependency ward. Protocols are undoubtedly in place regarding decontamination of hands but often the decontamination of tools are completely overlooked and yet present the highest risk of all.
