Stefab’s Decontamination Solutions for Healthcare Facilities
Laundry is considered to be an essential function for most institutional housekeeping departments, but particularly for healthcare facilities, it plays an even more vital role. It not only contributes to comfort and aesthetics but also assists with aspects like infection control and hygiene.
Tackling COVID-19 Pandemic With Best Practices in Healthcare
Ever thought a microscopic agent which is a billion times smaller than a human could endanger hordes of people across the world? The most advanced healthcare setups are collapsing to the challenge being posed today. The SARS-CoV-2 virus spreads from one human to another in numerous ways – both directly and indirectly.
From a healthcare setup’s perspective, all textiles must be processed to the highest standards possible to meet the patient’s needs. Bedsheets, pillow covers, isolation gowns, towels, etc. need to be laundered with the utmost care and in an equipped laundry setup. One has to keep in mind that the most critical points are patient health, laundry-room operator’s health, air contamination levels, etc.
The standard operating procedure involves the following steps –
• The hospital laundry receives linen from different departments like the General Ward, OT, OPD, ICU
• Subsequently, they undergo the process of sorting, sluicing/ washing, drying, ironing, folding & delivery
• The soiled/infected linen is given special care since it has to be sluiced & sterilised carefully
• In most cases, emergency room and OT linen are given special attention to ensure that they are thoroughly cleaned
