As a leading medical uniform and scrub supplier to NJ-area hospitals and medical facilities, we’re excited to relaunch our free laundry service guide. In this detailed whitepaper, you’ll discover the five most important steps toward choosing the right laundry provider and what they need to do to ensure a successful program at your facility.

The document is called “5 Things You Should Know About Your Medical Linen Laundry Service.”

But what are those five points? To find out fully, you’ll have to download the white paper. However, this resource isn’t just available for our current clients. It’s free for all who wish to know the most appropriate measures they or their medical facilities can take to secure effectively cleaned surgical scrubs, linens and patient gowns.

It’s true that the modern healthcare facility is far safer than the hospitals of decades past, with healthcare associated infections (HAIs) and surgical site infections (SSIs) on the decline. However, there’s still work to be done:

  • Over 700,000 estimated infections in hospitals nationwide in 2011 (last year of data)
  • MRSA bacteremia up 6% in New Jersey facilities between 2013 and 2014 (last year of data)

There are several important steps medical facilities need to take toward reducing hospital-borne illnesses and infections, the most important of which include awareness and proper sanitization. It’s up to you to make sure that your staff is generally aware of how to prevent HAIs -- once they do, your chances of reduction will drastically increase.

As for proper sanitation, that’s where your medical linen comes into play. The best way to guarantee sanitation is through working with a provider that goes above and beyond standards.
