I recently started at a retirement home. I find there is many cleaning and the disinfecting tasks. Thermometers in between patients, blood pressure monitors and O2 sat monitors, we try to use equipment dedicated to our isolation rooms but we still disinfectant after every use. We are cleaning surfaces like door handles and call bell pendants constantly as they are high touch. Keyboards and computer equipment – on med carts and at desks in nursing station are another area we attend to regularly. I feel like it has become so routine we may not realize how much we do in a shift.
