Effects of an Environmental Services Professional Training Course and Cleaning Products on the Rates of Infection Seen at Suburban Hospital
Smith R. et al. In 2000, National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) personnel conducted a survey at a number of the District of Columbia (DC) hospitals.

For example, cleaning practices did not allow for the appropriate contact time when disinfectants were applied to surfaces. This study evolved from the results of that survey and utilized a relatively new yet proven technology called Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide®(AHP®).
