Consumers and the broader public expect health facilities to be kept clean and well maintained. Staff members at health facilities have the right to a workplace in which they are able to deliver healthcare services safely and effectively.

The cleaning standards for Victorian health facilities aim to improve the quality of healthcare provision by ensuring that all risks involving cleaning are identified and managed in an appropriate manner.

Victorian health services are required to undertake cleaning audits throughout the year and provide results to the department.
