Clinic Hygiene & Prevention of Cross Contamination

To maintain clinic hygiene and prevent cross contamination or infection in your clinic, it is strongly recommended that you ensure the following:

  • The clinic is cleaned thoroughly every day.
  • The working area to be cleaned before and after every client.
  • Fresh towels and linen should be used for every new client that has been laundered at a minimum of 60°C.
  • Couch roll, disposable plastic sheeting/wrapping or waterproof bed sheets need to be used to protect the couch and keep the area as clean as possible.
  • Products should be dispensed from purpose-specific pump or spray bottles. Creams can be removed from jars or bottles with clean spatulas.
  • All lids on products are replaced securely after use.
  • All tools that are non-disposable should be sterilised prior to use.
  • Bins should be metal and have foot pedal operations and be emptied every day. Bins should be collected by an appropriate commercial/clinical waste disposal company.
