Sanitation Inspection Guidelines for Family Care Homes: Hygiene Mobile App
The intent of the Sanitation Inspection Guidelines for Family Care Homes: Hygiene mobile app is to help the family home caregiver understand the sanitation inspection process and reasons behind the sanitation requirements.
How does it work?
Each sanitation requirement is designed to help the caregiver keep children healthy and safe. This app can be used as a reference before, during, and after your annual sanitation inspection. These guidelines are organized in the same order as the Sanitation Inspection Report the inspector uses while visiting your facility. Proper hand washing techniques help prevent disease. Germs are not killed by hand washing. The germs are flushed away. While the soap lifts the germs from hands, the warm water flushes them away. Scrubbing for 15 to 20 seconds is effective. Scrub between fingers and over back of the hands and wrists. The more soap you use the better, and the longer you scrub, the better. Turn the water off using a paper towel. Using cloth towels more than once for hand drying, will re-contaminate hands. Paper towels help to prevent the hands from becoming contaminated after the hands are washed.
