BACKGROUND Environmental cleaning is essential in reducing microbial colonization and health care-associated infections in hospitals. However, there is no consensus for the standard method to assess hospital cleanliness, and comparisons of newer methodology, such as adenosine triphosphate bioluminescence assay, with the traditional methods are limited. METHODS A prospective study was conducted at a medical center between January 2013 and August 2013. In each selected room, 10-12 high-touch… CONTINUE READING
