A hospital is a massive building that requires consistent, constant sanitization. If you’ve ever been to a hospital, you probably saw someone pushing a cart with dozens of cleaning solutions. Plus, you saw automation infused as much as possible to minimize touch areas.
Cleanliness is vital to any medical facility because of the sensitive nature of the space. Medical facilities harbor germs and bacteria that may cause serious infections, particularly for the elderly, immunocompromised, and those who have undergone surgery.
Even a tiny viral outbreak would spell trouble for everyone: staff, doctors, visitors, and patients. This is why hospitals need to use disinfectants, but not just any old solution.

3 Reasons Why Hospitals Need to Use Disinfectants
First, hospitals need to use disinfectants because of the ever-present likelihood of sick patients spreading viruses or bacteria. Imagine how many patients come through a hospital or medical facility each week. According to AHA, there were 36,241,815 total admissions in the US’s community hospitals in 2021.
Second, visitors are also at risk of catching a virus in a hospital. Perhaps they bring in an illness themselves without realizing it. Waiting rooms may harbor just as much bacteria as a patient room, so it’s essential to vigorously clean after visitors.
Third, a hospital should use powerful cleaners on equipment to ensure further damage is not done to the patient in terms of sickness. Any patient-care devices should be thoroughly sanitized before and after use to prevent the spread of bacteria, or worse, from one patient to another.
Areas to Consider Sanitizing Most Often
In the health care environment, one must clean and disinfect walls, floors, furniture, sinks and taps, stairway rails, touch screens, countertops, door handles, and light switches. Equipment such as torches, ophthalmoscopes, trial lenses, slit lamps, and wheelchairs, to name a few, also require sanitizing.
These are just a few primary areas in a hospital that require thorough cleaning and sanitation:
- Nurses station
- Delivery room
- Patient treatment rooms
- Triage and waiting rooms
- Surgical performance rooms
