In hospital settings, there are a few common errors that must be identified and corrected. The person doing the disinfection should pay particular attention to the infection control aspect.

As a result of this effort, the management role, common errors, and mop handling technique during chemical disinfection of hospital surfaces using the triple basin method have been highlighted.

Conclusion: The current article takes a realistic approach to highlighting the difficulties encountered during hospital surface disinfection, the causes for these challenges, and how they are managed.
