The Center For Health Design Launches Perception of Cleanliness Toolbox


The Launch of a New Topic Toolbox:The Perception of Cleanliness

The Center is happy to announce the launch of a new¬†toolbox:¬†“The Perception of Cleanliness”.¬†Each of our toolboxes¬†contain¬†a library of newly-created and Center staff-curated content – research findings, expert insights, strategies, tools, and other useful resources.¬†A portion of each of our topic toolboxes are free and open to all, while¬†Affiliate+ members¬†have¬†access to the complete toolbox.

Environmental cleanliness affects the patient experience, patient satisfaction,¬†perceived service quality, and actual quality in terms of infection prevention. Successfully achieving certain levels of cleanliness requires an interdisciplinary approach that involves the building design, operational and policy changes, education of personnel, and cultural changes to the organization.To aid in this success, we’ve created¬†The Perception of Cleanliness Toolbox that contains:

  • An Issue Brief and Executive SummaryCHD
  • ‚ÄčFive¬†Interviews
  • Two Case Studies
  • Design Strategies
  • A Design¬†Tool
  • Three¬†Blogs
  • Lessons Learned
  • Related Resources
