Hartford, CT -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/31/2015 -- ImageFIRST introduces their Cubicle Curtain Cleaning Program to help prevent infections and ensure even greater patient safety at inpatient facilities. Now, hospitals within the state of Connecticut who choose ImageFIRST as their preferred healthcare laundry service provider have access to this program.
As indicated by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 1 in 25 United States' hospital patients catch at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI), costing millions of dollars annually. Furthermore, recent studies conducted by scientists found that 20 to 40% of healthcare-associated infections can be traced back to contaminated healthcare workers' hands, putting at risk all commonly-touched surfaces such as privacy curtains. ImageFIRST's new Cubicle Curtain Cleaning Program helps healthcare facilities with added infection prevention efforts.
Those who opt to participate in ImageFIRST Connecticut's Cubicle Curtain Cleaning Program will find a fully-managed program with no up-front cost. As part of the service, an ImageFIRST professional will also remove old curtains and install uniquely-designed cubicle curtains that can be changed in seconds. When the professional returns regularly, he or she will remove the dirty panels and replace them with fresh ones. Lastly, the dedicated company representative will also scan the curtains' RFID technology for tracking and documentation of infection prevention, then bring the dirty curtains to ImageFIRST's facility for cleaning and processing.
Protecting patients and ensuring their health is a top priority for any healthcare facility. Organizations interested in hearing more about this innovative Cubicle Curtain Cleaning Program can reach out to ImageFIRST Connecticut at any time.
