Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 26, 2012 - Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc. (Jan-Pro), an established global leader in advanced commercial cleaning, today announced its JP MedMetrix program, the company’s first branded medical cleaning program offering compliance with federal, state and private agencies. JP MedMetrix trained personnel are certified in medical cleaning of hospitals, medical and dental offices, laboratories and facilities where cleaning practices deal with bloodborne pathogens and bio-hazardous materials on a regular basis.
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.
“We are thrilled with the addition of JP MedMetrix to our Jan-Pro branded processes,” said Robert Burns, Director of Operations, Jan-Pro of the Western Carolinas. “This gives us the opportunity to highlight our expertise in the medical field, and allows us to clearly and tangibly explain the truly unique advantages of Jan-Pro.”
As a Jan-Pro medical client, the Methodist Germantown Surgery Center explains it well: “Jan-Pro does an excellent job in cleaning our surgical facility. There is always open and frequent communication between us, and they act quickly to resolve any issues that require their further attention.”
The JP MedMetrix is the newest in a long line of Jan-Pro firsts. A leader in bringing innovation to clients, Jan-Pro also pioneered back pack vacuums which remove airborne particles, microfiber mops for reducing contamination, color coded micro fiber for specialized area cleaning, hospital grade disinfectants approved to eliminate bacteria, and most recently the EnviroShield sprayer disinfectant system which offers 100% disinfection coverage.
“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.”
“With this program, we are providing the highest level of protection for our medical and healthcare related accounts, their patients and their staff,” continued Bentley. “Jan-Pro is most concerned that no one is exposed to any harmful elements or environments.” Renal Advantage in Memphis agrees: “The professional approach that we’ve come to expect from Jan-Pro helps us keep our patients in a safe and clean environment.”
Today hospital and medical facilities demand the highest standards with no room for uncertainty. Industrial cleaning professionals trained in the JP MedMetrix Program offer certified cleaning and guaranteed results.
