Posted on June 27, 2012
Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012 -- Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc., a global leader in advanced commercial cleaning, has announced its JP MedMetrix program, the company’s first branded medical cleaning program offering compliance with federal, state and private agencies.
Jan-Pro franchisees enrolled in the MedMetrix program are trained in six key areas: universal precautions, knowledge of standards, exposure control, bloodbourne pathogens, documentation and incident reporting, and finally certification.
“After successful completion of the MedMetrix Certification Program, Jan-Pro franchisees are thoroughly and fully trained in meeting and exceeding the standards required by medical associations to reduce the spread of bacteria and viruses in medical facilities,” said Charlotte Bentley, Director of Training, Jan-Pro International. “These are specially trained and certified professionals, qualified to clean in a safe work environment.”
Standards have been set for today’s medical environments to ensure that medical facilities offer patients, practitioners and staff comprehensive standards of operational health and safety. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has approved Jan-Pro chemicals to rid or kill all strains of bacteria and viruses. The Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) sets the guidelines for safe patient care and work environment in settings where surgical and invasive procedures are performed. OSHA, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration assures safe working conditions, and The Joint Commission inspects, verifies compliance and gives accreditation to hospitals, allowing them to receive funds from Medicaid and Medicare. The Jan-Pro JP MedMetrix Program is in compliance with each and every one of these federal, state and private agencies.
“The Jan-Pro MedMetrics training program educates the franchise owner on how to professionally disinfect and clean in the medical environment,” said Robert Woods, owner Jan-Pro of the South Carolina Coast. “Jan-Pro is clearly a level above your normal cleaning company.”
