ImageFIRST Seattle Helping Healthcare Providers Improve Environmental Hygiene by Preventing Laundry Contamination


Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/02/2015 -- There are many ways by which infections can be spread in hospitals and outpatient medical clinics, and, in the U.S., 99% of healthcare facilities are actively working toward improving their environmental hygiene, according to a survey taken by Infection Control Today. This same survey showed that most hospitals (55% of those surveyed) felt inadequately funded and staffed to provide the most effective environmental services possible. Leveraging vendor partners – such as ImageFIRST Seattle, a provider of healthcare laundry services – can assist area medical facilities in fulfilling their cleaning and disinfection efforts while saving medical staff valuable time.

ImageFIRST provides outpatient medical facilities and hospitals with sanitized medical laundry that goes beyond OSHA-regulated standards of sanitation, thanks in part to their unique Triple BioShield Protection process. Laundry undergoes a special sanitary wash, application of a softener that inhibits bacteria post-laundering, and wrapping of all laundry in plastic to ensure its continued cleanliness during the delivery process.

Along with their unique sanitation process, ImageFIRST Seattle and other locations nationwide have put a heavy emphasis on their customer service, understanding that helping to provide their clients with excellent, comprehensive care can also contribute to the effort to improve environmental hygiene by freeing up their time to concentrate on patients and other areas of sanitation. Their 5-point quality system includes the AssuranceFIRST philosophy that client and patient satisfaction and quality control, including the "little details," should always come first.
