Sanitation Engineers: The Value of Training

Smart man, this Zoutman.  Money isn't a solution; it is, in some cases, a facilitator for a solution, but money by itself does nothing.  We're too quick to spend (and too quick to cut) without actually making an effort and investing the time to find where the problem lies.
First and foremost - how are hospital cleaners treated?  How much training do they get?  Do they have HR support to turn to if they have pressing issues, especially if the wages aren't fantastic, or are they expected to leave personal problems at home and thoroughly clean room after room in monotonous yet rapid fashion?
I don't know.  I haven't done any research on this front.
That's what we pay policy people for, isn't it?
