One of the most recent issues I had on the unit was a lack of knowledge about different types of disinfectants in the workplace.
We had a suspected C-diff outbreak. One of the cleaning staff recommended wipes specifically designed for the job, but they were highly corrosive compared to the wipes we are used to. Of course, nobody read the labels, and everyone was using those as regular wipes. I had to intervene and put those back into the stockroom frequently.
I think there should be more education on different types of cleaning supplied, especially when nursing staff are expected to clean up bodily fluids before cleaning staff arrives.
