Healthcare Linen: Not All Laundering Is Created Equal
For healthcare facilities, ensuring laundry is at least hygienically clean is crucial to minimizing the spread of pathogens – and the bare minimum according to Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Yet not all laundering is created equal.
According to the CDC, dry cleaning is ineffective in reducing the number of bacteria and viruses on contaminated linens. It should therefore not be considered an option for healthcare facilities’ laundry.
Additionally, home laundering can be inconsistent, and doesn’t provide hygienically clean laundry. OSHA regulations even prohibit home laundering of personal protective apparel such as lab coats.
Infection Prevention through Medical Linen Sanitization
At ImageFIRST, our laundering goes beyond hygienically clean to ensure that your medical linen is sanitized, which is a 99.9% reduction in bacteria according to the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
All our programs include our 5-Point Product Quality Assurance System:

Beyond laundering, our handling procedures in and out of our plants are centered around two primary elements: the protection of staff and avoiding recontamination. We follow strict daily, weekly, and annual checks of adherence to infection prevention processes and layer in monthly third-party, independent testing to ensure compliance.
The right linen and laundry partner can help alleviate medical staff workload by providing an infection prevention process tailored specifically for healthcare – at least when it comes to linen.
