ATP Testing/Consultation

Infection control is an increasingly critical issue for hospitals and other medical facilities. Whether a patient is in the hospital or at their primary care facility, they are exposed to a number of environmental factors that can have an adverse effect on their health. This type of exposure has heightened the concern with the cleanliness of healthcare facilities.

Medi-Kleen, Inc. utilizes the Hygiena SystemSURE Plus Hospital ATP Detection Program, which is designed to improve the standard of cleanliness of healthcare facilities. This program offers continuous monitoring, which provides insight as to whether current cleaning practices are sufficient to maintain a sanitary environment, allowing the facility to make improvements when necessary.

What Is ATP?

ATP is an energy molecule found in all plant, animal and microbial cells. All organic matter contains ATP, including blood, saliva, bacteria, mold and microorganisms. Specifically in healthcare facilities, the organic matter that is most concerning comes from bodily fluids and hand contact. The detection of an unacceptable level of ATP on a surface is an indication of a high probability of cross-contamination and risk of infection to patients and staff.

Why is ATP monitoring important for your facility?

* ATP monitoring is a technique approved by the CDC as a reliable indicator of ATP levels, allowing for instant assessment of the cleanliness of surfaces.

* Priority touch points (PTP) are areas with very high hand contact, resulting in unacceptably high levels of ATP if not properly cleaned and sanitized. ATP monitoring will help you with on-going assessment and improvement in your housekeeping program.

* Record and track test results to identify problem areas, make improvements in housekeeping practices, and show due diligence and compliance with industry regulatory agencies. You will receive written documentation, including graphs of pass/fail test results, as well as recommendations to enhance your infection control program.

Medi-Kleen, Inc. can customize a plan for your facility for regular monitoring or as a one time consultation and testing of your facility with a detailed report with suggestions for improvement in your housekeeping program. We would be happy to stop by your facility to further discuss the value and merits of ATP monitoring.
