Does Your Infection Prevention Plan Need a Healthy Boost?

Posted by ImageFIRST Healthcare Laundry Specialists on Jul 15, 2016 10:17:08 AM

Nowadays, the word “sick” can be used to mean “cool” or “awesome,” but as we all know, it doesn’t feel so awesome to be physically sick. Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are a real problem in the medical industry, and ImageFIRST Kansas City is taking multiple proactive measures to help facilities avoid the spread of pathogens. We provide medical linen service in Kansas City, KS, which includes everything from inventory management around Shawnee to delivering scrub uniforms in Topeka, KS and beyond.

 

Efficient, sanitary solutions are our goal. Patient satisfaction and safety is critical, which is why we take infection prevention extremely seriously. We utilize Triple BioShield Protection on our products, which kills up to 99.999% of pathogens. Our 5-Point Product Quality system is a process that assures all of our products are free from stains, holes and other unsightly imperfections that could negatively impact patient perception. Additionally, we understand that emergencies happen, which is why we offer a Same-Day Linen Rescue to assist inpatient and outpatient offices on unexpectedly busy days—meaning you’ll always get sanitized linen no matter how rushed you are.

 

Most medical practices have room for improvement when it comes to preventing HAIs. Some facilities could benefit from minor tweaks while others need more help.

 

There should always be a proven protocol in place. You need a robust HAI plan to combat airborne pathogens from spreading. Bacteria are constantly infiltrating medical facilities, thereby putting your patients and staff at risk. If your facility lacks a proactive approach to linen sanitation and inventory management, it’s perpetuating the spread of harmful germs throughout your facilities.

 

Once upon a time it was feasible to manage every aspect of your healthcare operations. This was before the inception of vendors like ImageFIRST, who specialize in linen services to free up time for staff members to cater to other important issues (like patient satisfaction). Your vendors should be a partner in bringing solutions to you. The right rental and laundry service provider should always be dedicated to upholding high sanitation standards. Don’t forget comfort. ImageFIRST emphasizes sanitary, efficient solutions, but all of our products have the patients’ comfort in mind.
