Infection Prevention and the Impact on Patient and Staff Experience

Medical staff and their patients can be exposed to a variety of fomites in the hospital setting. Fomites, or materials that are likely to carry infection, must be properly managed to prevent the spread of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). From staff washing their scrubs at home to privacy curtains not being changed often enough – there are countless places for pathogens to linger. How can you overcome the challenges of infection prevention without putting additional stress on your overworked staff? By providing staff with the appropriate guidance and partnering with an accredited laundry provider, you can ensure your facility will meet your infection prevention goals all while providing the exceptional care your patients deserve.
