ImageFIRST Upholds "Family Standard" for All of Their Laundry Processes


Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/17/2017 -- ImageFIRST, provider of quality healthcare linen services for Louisville, KY, and surrounding areas, announces that having a "family standard" makes a significant difference for their clients and their patients. The standard dictates that ImageFIRST would not give patients of the healthcare facilities that they serve anything that they would not give their own family members.

ImageFIRST explains that not all laundering processes are created equal, which is why the company uses methods that specifically meet the demands of the healthcare industry. One of the primary goals of ImageFIRST's laundry services is to prevent infection, both to protect their associates and for the patients who will be using the linens in the future. Their infection prevention processes are compliant with OSHA, CDC, HLAC and ANSI/AAMI.

Dirty laundry is clearly separated from clean linens before it even enters the facility to ensure proper handling. The laundry is then washed and treated with the Triple BioShield Protection® Process, which kills up to 99.999% of bacteria for sanitized laundry. After the wash, a bacteria-inhibiting softener is applied to the fabric. Lastly, the linen is wrapped in plastic to be safely transported back to the customer's medical facility.

ImageFIRST performs various compliance checks daily, weekly and monthly, in addition to staying up-to-date with Corporate and HLAC certification. They also maintain their commitment to their customers by proactively replacing stained or worn-out patient gowns that they would not want their family members to wear.

ImageFIRST believes that by upholding this "family standard" that they are able to provide better services and products, including scrubs and medical uniforms for Chicago, IL, healthcare facilities as well as throughout the country.
