Over the last few years these departments are changing their protocol regarding biohazard clean up and decontamination. Inmates who were previously required to perform these clean ups experienced exposure to all different types of biohazards and infectious pathogens.
Most departments now contract these clean us to a compliant professional service for the safety and protection of their staff and inmates. This also reduces the legal liability of someone being exposed to these dangerous biohazards.
BioScene Clean Up offers the following contracted services to Police Departments and Medical Service Providers:
• Jail Cell & Holding Area Clean up – It’s imperative these areas are properly cleaned and disinfected immediately to avoid transmission of things like MRSA and other airborne pathogens, contact with blood in these area and other bodily fluids that may be present.
• Police Vehicle Decontamination – After transporting an inmate, frequently there are bodily fluids like blood, vomit, urine and feces left behind. These vehicles must be cleaned immediately with proper chemicals and cleaning techniques to ensure the safety of the personnel. It’s our goal to clean these vehicles and returning them to service as quick as possible.
• Emergency Vehicle Decontamination - Bodily fluids present a high risk to the health and safety of the people who travel in these vehicles due to the risk of infection and exposure to diseases such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV that can be contained within them and transferred. Therefore it is vital that these vehicles are cleaned and disinfected in order to minimize this risk.
Our technicians are accustomed to cleaning homicide/murder, suicide and unattended death scenes which are all extremely dangerous. Police and Emergency service clean up is as dangerous if not more because of the people in the affected areas most often times cannot be removed (Ex. Jails). Our staff is OSHA compliant and obtain the necessary credentials to work in these secure areas and follow strict protocol to ensure the safety of other inmates and personnel.
