Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/12/2015 -- Healthcare facilities nationwide have an ongoing challenge with sanitation: although handwashing by medical professionals is imperative to preventing the spread of disease, studies have shown that one in four hospitals have not implemented the practices and policies that are recommended for effective hand hygiene. Oftentimes, this is due to hospital employees' time and attention being occupied by smaller, less important, but necessary daily tasks. ImageFIRST Tampa, an industry leader in healthcare laundry services, is proud to contribute to sanitation by providing area hospitals with timely, personalized delivery and stocking services by dedicated Customer Advocates, which allow medical professionals the additional time they need to focus on patient care.
ImageFIRST Tampa furnishes sanitized linens, gowns, robes, scrubs, lab coats and more to medical facilities in Northern Florida, with the aim of providing not just quality products, but also exceptional service. ImageFIRST differentiates itself from the competition through the dedication of its Customer Advocates; these committed associates provide friendly, personalized service to medical facilities, during which they get to know staff members and find out ways they can help streamline the linen inventory management in order to help the hospital function with greater efficiency. Time saved not correcting errors or re-ordering or recalculating linens weekly helps facilities have more time for other, more important things relevant to patient care.
Outpatient facilities served by ImageFIRST Tampa benefit from the company's many different systems and services designed to provide the highest-quality medical laundry in the industry. ImageFIRST's Triple BioShield Protection process ensures that all products are sanitized during wash, protected by a protective coating/softener, and delivered in a plastic wrap. The company also created the 5-Point Product Quality system to ensure that all laundry is subject to rigorous quality evaluation, providing consistent excellence in product.
