Is Your In-House Cleaning Staff Causing You Problems in Your Medical Office?
Your routine medical office cleaning should help you keep patients, not lose them.
The cleaning and maintenance of your medical facility is a key part of an overall smooth operation. However, operating a medical office cleaning service department in-house can be a nightmare. It is literally operating a completely separate business with separate requirements and responsibilities within your existing business. With an in-house janitorial crew, you are pulling extra resources in terms of insurance, taxes, and salary requirements.
A dirty and poorly kept medical facility negatively impacts patient and family perception. It negatively impacts your ability to recruit, hire and retain a great healthcare team. It impacts the overall impression of your facility and services. A dusty lobby, messy bathroom mirrors, and grimy armrests, will make people less likely to recommend or return to your practice. Potential employees will leave if they perceive the dirty office as a place where their professional work won’t be prioritized.
Many offices think handling their medical office cleaning tasks using their own employees is a practical way to save money. And those that hire an in-house crew to handle their cleaning realize that it is not the cheaper route. Time and money is used up on training the staff or paying the in-house crew. The in-house crew requires you to deal with additional pay checks, insurance and 401k, among other payroll requirements. The sensible and economical choice is to outsource your cleaning to a janitorial provider who specializes in medical cleaning.
