What Skills Does a Cleaner at a Hospital Need?
Hospital cleaning jobs don't usually have any particular educational requirement, not even a high school diploma. A new cleaner typically starts out helping an experienced worker and learns on the job. Hospitals are the third-largest employers of cleaning personnel, after traveler accommodations and building services, according to the S.A Bureau of Labor Statistics. Hospital cleaners need the same skills as those in other institutions, but with some special additions.
Hospital cleaners need the ability to perform general housekeeping tasks, such as cleaning the rooms, hallways, offices and public areas, emptying trash, changing linens and making beds. They need to know how to dust and polish furniture and use vacuum cleaners and floor waxing equipment.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, hospitals employ specialized cleaning protocols. These protocols can be learned on the job, but safety and patient healing depends on hospital cleaners following protocol. Clean rooms and common areas help to contain the spread of disease from one patient to another.
Hospital Safety and Sanitation
A hospital environment requires special attention to safety and sanitation. Hospital cleaners need to understand and apply safe methods of handling equipment and chemicals. They need the ability to follow hospital procedures carefully, for example in washing down and sanitizing furniture and equipment. Attention to detail is especially important in the hospital environment. Because patients may not be able to notice problems, hospital cleaners must be alert to dangers and report them. For example, they may need to report a broken bed rail.
Cleaning and Organizational Abilities
Hospital cleaners need especially strong organizational skills to put their tasks in order and accomplish them efficiently. For example, if doctors are in the room performing a procedure on a patient, they may need to delay cleaning that room until later. They need the ability to complete their daily work on time even if they are often interrupted by medical staff, patients, visitors or emergencies. Organizational skills are also necessary to store the cleaning equipment and supplies properly and maintain the storage closets in good order.
Hospital Cleaner Physical Demands
Hospital cleaners need to be in good physical condition and have stamina, although employers may make reasonable accommodations for workers with disabilities. As a general worker, duties in hospital settings require that they spend most of the workday on their feet while cleaning, pushing equipment and moving furniture. They need the strength and flexibility to kneel, crawl, stoop or bend and the manual dexterity to open containers and use cleaning tools. A typical hospital cleaning job requires the ability to lift 30 pounds. Cleaners also need good vision to see what they are doing and to read cleaning product labels and equipment controls.
Interpersonal and Communication Skills
A hospital cleaner has an especially strong need for interpersonal skills to work well with supervisors, other staff, visitors and patients. They need to communicate compassionately with patients who may be in pain or depressed. They must show consideration by adjusting their work to patient needs. They need English language skills to understand written and oral instructions and explain problems to supervisors or staff. They must read labels, make notes and keep records as required by hospital procedures.
