Nashville, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/01/2016 -- In order for nurses to provide topnotch care for their patients, the healthcare environment needs to be adequately sourced and be of high-quality. According to a report that was released by Press Ganey Holdings last year, titled "Nursing Special Report: The Influence of Nurse Work Environment on Patient, Payment and Nurse Outcomes in Acute Care Settings", some medical facilities had low scores for patient experience due to poor nurse work environments, despite the fact that their staff count was high.
The bed linens, garments and nurses uniforms provided to patients at Tennessee medical facilities can play a role in affecting the quality of nurse work environments. ImageFIRST Tennessee, the medical laundry provider, offers cleaning, renting and delivery services that can help to improve the quality of nurse work environments, which can in turn enhance patient perception for medical facilities. The report states that effective and efficient nurse work environments enhance not only patient perception but nurse perceptions of medical facilities as well.
ImageFIRST Tennessee operates with patient-perception-focused practices that can help to improve the overall quality of the nurse work environment. Their 5-Point Product Quality System follows specific practices and standards so that laundry products are kept in top condition. For example, their Bright White Standard certifies that all bed linens are bright white in color at all times, while their packaging method makes sure that the gowns are individually sealed for freshness and cleanliness. The practice also checks that only quality products are offered with fabrics that provide comfort, warmth and softness.
