Try and imagine a day without environmental services and housekeeping.
These are the professionals who clean up patient areas, washrooms, hallways and offices to ensure that our healthcare facilities are completely germ free. These are hardworking individuals who are often out of the public eye and rarely get the recognition they deserve.
Environmental services and housekeeping workers clean and disinfect sinks, fixtures, door knobs, walls and more to stop the spread of germs. They also perform daily garbage pickup and disposal, while thoroughly sanitizing public and private areas at every facility to prevent infection.
This physically demanding job exposes these workers to hazardous chemicals and biohazards, but the healthcare industry depends on these professionals who work tirelessly to make a difference to the lives of the patients they care for.
