Sealed Air: Diversey Care VeriCleanTM/MC program

Friday, 12 September, 2014





Recent studies demonstrated that current cleaning practices results in high touch surfaces being adequately cleaned less than half the time1


Diversey Care’s VERICLEAN Program is an evidence-based approach to improve the cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces by integrating products, processes, training, and validation into an systematic approach to optimize patient outcomes. VERICLEAN is a continuous improvement process designed to enhance cleaning outcomes and reduce the risk of the environment in the transmission of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs).
VERICLEAN accomplishes this by optimizing patient room cleaning process, incorporating the right products and tools, implementing best practices through training and customized materials, and measuring cleaning outcomes through surface testing and web-based audit software.
Surface testing with the VERICLEAN  fluorescent marking spray and UV torch, used  in conjunction with IMap, Diversey Care’s web-based audit software, allows facilities to pinpoint areas that require improvement and  help them to optimise their cleaning practices.
The VERICLEAN Program; Oxivir®Tb, a one-step hospital grade disinfectant cleaner with accelerated hydrogen peroxide technology; and TASKI® Jonmaster microfibre cleaning system are three innovations from Diversey Care’s Infection Prevention Program. Together, they help healthcare facilities deliver improved cleaning outcomes while reducing the risk of HAI transmissions.
Diversey Care is a division of Sealed Air, a global leader in food packaging  solutions, protective packaging and cleaning and hygiene solutions.
