Procedure Title: Terminal Cleaning in the SCDU

Description

SCOPE:
The SCDU follows a defined set of protocols for activation of the Unit. Because the SCDU must be prepared for a wide range of infectious agents, plans exist to respond as appropriate based on the agent and clinical presentation of the patient. Consideration must be given to appropriate safe transport into the Unit, as well as the safe delivery of care for patients while in the Unit.

PURPOSE:
To establish a process to eliminate infectious pathogens from a room previously occupied by a patient with a serious communicable disease.
