Is Your Facility’s Infection Plan Complete?

Posted by ImageFIRST on Tue, Aug 02, 2016 @ 10:10 AM

At ImageFIRST, we know that being a good vendor partner means providing our customers with remarkable service. That means that our role as a healthcare laundry specialist and provider of medical scrubs in St. Paul, MN and surrounding communities encompasses much more than “pick up, drop off, repeat.”

One of our biggest roles as a vendor partner is to help our customers strategically target the most pressing issues in healthcare today. Chief among your concerns are healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs), which despite widespread prevention efforts still affect over one in twenty patients. And as you well know, prevention is easier said than done—bacteria, viruses and other pathogens are constantly flowing in and out of healthcare facilities, putting staff and patients at risk.

To further minimize the spread of pathogens, you need an all-encompassing HAI prevention plan that leverages all of your resources. One of the biggest resources you can leverage? Your laundry provider! How your linens are handled plays a critical role in infection prevention. Linens, gowns and other garments are fertile breeding grounds for pathogens, and how your inventory is stored and handled can mean the difference between an effective HAI prevention initiative and a disastrous one.

That’s where ImageFIRST comes in, not just as a vendor of medical linen and laundry but as a true partner. More than an ordinary rental and laundry service provider, we are dedicated to upholding sanitation standards and assisting you with your linen management for remarkable results that include lower infection rates and higher patient satisfaction.

Now, maybe you’re confident that your HAI prevention program is secure—but don’t wait for a disaster to prove you wrong. Five decades of experience in this industry have taught us that healthcare providers can easily determine whether their linen provider does enough for them by asking three simple questions. To help you, we offer a complimentary guide on how to regulate your linens and develop an ironclad protection program that keeps patients safe and satisfied.  Click here to download “3 Questions To Determine If Your Infection Prevention Plan Is Complete.”

If you think your infection prevention plan isn’t sufficient after all, we can help. We can supply medical linen, patient gowns, scrubs and uniforms to your St. Paul, MN facility, all correctly managed and backed by our AssuranceFIRST promise, which includes our sanitizing wash process that kills up to 99.999% of pathogens.
