ImageFIRST Atlanta's Cubicle Curtain Program Enhances Infection Prevention Efforts


Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/01/2016 -- ImageFIRST Atlanta, known for providing medical linens in Mobile, AL and beyond, now provides a comprehensive Cubicle Curtain Program to help keep patients safer from healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) while cutting down on the time that medical professionals spend performing tasks unrelated to the patients themselves.

HAIs affects 1 out of every 25 patients who visit medical facilities, which costs the industry more than $45 billion annually, according to the CDC. Privacy curtains are a consistent culprit in the transmission of infection, as reported to various studies. Up to 40% of HAIs can be traced to contamination of healthcare workers' hands; and unsurprisingly, privacy curtains that are frequently handled by staff are prone to increased exposure to dangerous pathogens.

ImageFIRST Atlanta, as part of their medical laundry services in Panama City, FL and across the region, provides a way for healthcare facilities to easily and affordably incorporate sanitized privacy curtains into their infection prevention plan. ImageFIRST's Cubicle Curtain laundry and rental service is a fully-managed laundry management program that provides facilities with privacy curtains with no upfront costs and laundering that exceed infection prevention standards.

Facility administrators can select curtain fabric designs and have measurements taken, and then ImageFIRST Atlanta will install curtains, replace panels on a regular schedule, launder and manage panel inventory to ensure that there is ample supply on hand.

ImageFIRST Atlanta's Cubicle Curtains are sanitized through advanced wash processes and protection. Their Triple BioShield Protection process eliminates 99.999% of pathogens, ensuring pathogens are dead on contact and establishing protective barriers with an antibacterial softener and coating, plus plastic barriers that protect curtains during transportation.

ImageFIRST Atlanta is offering a complimentary assessment to interested facilities to help them determine where their services can benefit them the most. To learn more about ImageFIRST Atlanta or their Cubicle Curtain program, visit the website at, e-mail or call 1-800-932-7472.
