We pride ourselves on having professional staff that are capable of carrying out their duties with industry-leading competency levels and unparalleled customer service.
Beginning with our selection process and during training, our auditors go through several rigorous practices before they are sent into the field. This prepares them to perform the efficient and detailed audits needed to carry out the rest of our consulting process.
The first step in our auditing program is to come into your facility with our team of healthcare professionals and perform a baseline audit so that we can let you know exactly how your facility compares to other like facilities.
Armed with self-collected, unbiased data and comparable benchmarks, Podojil & Associates Incorporated auditors can provide insightful and relevant recommendations that lead to overall improvements in cleaning performance. Including identification of bacterial hot spots and other ways to increase monthly assessment scores. Our audit reports give a snapshot of current performance and provide detailed corrective action follow up points.
Following the initial audit, Podojil & Associates, Incorporated will also provide you with a proposal on what we recommend for your facility so that you can perform cleaning audits internally or to hire our company to perform your cleaning audits on a monthly basis. You could also choose a combination of both where you perform audits and Podojil & Associates, Incorporated comes in on a quarterly or less frequent basis to monitor the internal audit process.
Our third-party independent auditing accountability program guarantees that you will know exactly how clean your facility is. Organizations can monitor their progress and continue to make gradual improvements to their cleaning strategies.
