  • Our vision at the William Osler Health System is "Patient inspired health care without boundaries". To achieve these results it is vital that all departments and services perform to a high and measurable standard. Achieving our vision every day is critical to the care and safety of our patients and staff. With our vision as our guide we implemented a very comprehensive housekeeping quality program. Included in our program was the introduction of the unannounced Third Party Cleanliness Auditing process which is conducted by Westech Inc of Canada. This process provides us with an objective and measurable evaluation of our level of cleanliness and is viewed as a best practice. Our work with Westech has supported the development and implementation of a comprehensive and accountable cleanliness program at Osler.

  • The London Health Sciences Centre hospital engaged in finding a reputable company to perform a hospital-wide cleaning audit this past summer. The Request for Proposal was successfully answered by Westech Systems Inc. The audit was needed to establish a cleaning baseline for our facilities. The information was essential for the creation of a Housekeeping Request for Proposal for the outsourced areas of the hospital. Our experience with Westech was excellent. Dean Waisman and his experienced crew did a very thorough, professional job. The audit report provided us with solid information that would lead us to changes in our cleaning practices.

  • Northern Health's (NH) experience with Westech has been very beneficial. We have made significant strides in improving the cleanliness ratings of our facilities by using the housekeeping auditing tools developed by Westech Inc. In NH, we use internal auditors using the tools developed, as well as being rated through external verification by Westech auditors. NH has also utilized Westech's workload planning software against new provincial cleaning standards and auditing standards to control how to best efficiently apply our available human resources. These tools have improved our understanding of how to utilize the housekeeping staff to their best abilities, and to the best effect on our cleanliness audits. NH is also utilizing Westech in development of a food safe auditing tool which can be used internally by NHA supervisory staff to monitor our food services departments. Our relationship with Westech continues to evolve as we look to adhere to Provincial standards and best practices in the Province of BC and Canada.
