Medical Laundry Services- Critical to Healthy Healthcare
Posted by stacy on Sat, Jul 23, 2011
Cleanliness should be the highest priority when it comes to healthcare laundry. Linen used in the medical sector should be hygienic, stylish and comfortable.
Medical linen includes scrubs, sheets, towels, patient gowns, lab coats, and a variety of other uniforms. When it comes to laundering medical linen it is important to take proper care to handle the linen properly and to provide patients and medical staff with clean, sanitized linen and uniforms.
Moreover, storage also plays a pivotal role in medical linen care. Linen should be placed in leak resistant laundry bags marked with the biohazard symbol. The bag should be placed in a covered bag stand or linen hamper.
Medical linens should also be divided by item and color. All medical linen should be washed in 160 degree water, using environmentally safe laundering agents, to ensure all germs and bacteria are properly removed. MediCleanse complies with the laundry safety and health regulations established by OSHA and HLAC.
Many companies with on premise laundries have observed that professional medical laundries can significantly cut costs by outsourcing to larger, more energy and labor efficient laundry services like MediCleanse Healthcare Linen Services, reduce company liability by outsourcing this production. MediCleanse linen and uniforms provide a level of professionalism and comfort that most onsite laundries simply can’t provide.
