The only safe way to treat patients is in a sterile setting. And the only way to ensure a sterile setting is with frequent and thorough cleaning. Because of this, healthcare facilities always have medical housekeeping jobs that they need to fill.
The people in these positions are responsible for sanitizing patient rooms, workspaces, waiting rooms and other critical areas. Medical housekeeping jobs play a big part in keeping patients safe, especially those who have compromised immune systems. Being germ-free is a top priority for every healthcare facility. It helps patients get healthy faster and stay that way.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that medical housekeeper careers make up about 17% of all cleaning positions. A lot of that has to do with the sanitation demands of the healthcare industry. Another part of it is the fact that many facilities are expanding to accommodate our aging population. Hundreds of hospitals around the country have recently added, or plan to add, a new wing to their facility, and many new medical housekeeping jobs are popping up as a result. Take a look on the ADVANCE job board to see what medical housekeeping jobs are out there for you right now.
