According to the Oregon Patient Safety Commission:
“Terminal cleaning of each operating and procedure room will be completed daily when the scheduled procedures are completed for the day. Unused rooms should be cleaned once during each 24-hour period during the regularly scheduled work week because personnel entering unused rooms and moving equipment and supplies in and out of the room can increase the risk of environmental contamination. Mechanical friction and a facility approved EPA-registered agent will be used to clean the operating and procedure rooms. ”
