ATP CLEANING VERIFICATION SYSTEMSURE PLUS BY HYGIENA ATP Cleaning Verification is one of the leading methods recommended by the CDC for monitoring and improving environmental cleanliness in hospitals. The detection of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the universal unit of energy in all living cells, immediately determines if surfaces are truly clean. At TouchPoint, we use Hygiena’s SystemSure Plus as the standard for monitoring our cleaning effectiveness.

The system is an affordable, objective, easy-to-use method for verification of surface cleanliness, giving actionable results in 15 seconds. Using this technology, EVS managers can immediately know if surfaces have been cleaned properly and verify that rooms are safe for the next patient to occupy. This verification system also tracks and trends cleaning performance so that our teams can benchmark cleaning thoroughness and collaborate to achieve even cleaner facilities – all using objective, scientific data.

WHY IS ATP TESTING IMPORTANT?

• To provide our patients with the best possible environment for healing • To improve cleaning effectiveness to ensure that we’re cleaning to the highest standards • To offer objective feedback, training and support to our associates

ATP Testing is a nationwide requirement. TouchPoint EVS managers conduct weekly ATP testing of C-Diff discharge rooms immediately after rooms are cleaned. It is required that a minimum of four surfaces be tested from high-touch areas.

The use of ATP cleaning verification has helped reduce Ascension’s C.diff infections by 16 percent year- over-year.
