Hello folks! Our team is getting mixed information regarding swabbing of floor drains for pathogens. They are a direct indicator of Listeria in an area since they are the final point of flow from cleaning. However others suggest that you will always find Listeria in floor drains. We have a comprehensive program which is serving us well. I'm interested to hear perspectives regarding floor drains and swabbing, pathogens?
Also, understanding post sanitation swabs may be negated by the presence of sanitizer, post sanitation and pre-op swabbing timing is important. A dry operation that must be wet washed requires a dry step. Timing is important and I'm interested in any thoughts others have here as well. Thank you in advance!
