Rental and Laundry Program for Improved Safety and Infection Prevention

Are your hospital’s cubicle curtains a cross-contamination risk?

A study from The American Journal of Infection Control found that 92% of cubicle curtains were contaminated with VRE, MRSA, C. difficile and/or other common Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI) bacteria.

Laundering cubicle curtains is effective at keeping patient surroundings safe if done in accordance with OSHA and CDC regulations to properly remove bacteria – but changing curtains can be time-consuming. How can hospitals manage their curtains and labor costs effectively while maintaining safety?
