Is your medical linen management ready for the patient care challenges of 2021? With everything that 2020 has thrown at us, 2021 needs to be the year where preparation meets action. The right medical linen management partner can help with that. 

What’s Needed To Improve Your Facility’s Medical Linen Management in 2021

Here’s what’s on the horizon for medical linen services and how you can help your facility prepare and cope:

1. Cost-efficient solutions for your linen needs.

The cost of linens and their management can easily get out of hand. Unfortunately, this can prove disastrous to your operations. Your 2021 linen and patient care need to lower laundry operation costs without jeopardizing the quality of your supplies.

2. More emphasis on protection against cross-contamination.

Linen and patient care protocols in 2021 predict more emphasis on preventing cross-contamination and nosocomial infections at all levels.

There is a need for tighter controls on handling of both used and new linens both in and out of the facility. Seeing how easily situations can get out of hand in close-knit facilities like hospitals and nursing homes, facility managers need to tighten restrictions not only on laundering but on handling and storage as well.

3. Securing the quantity and quality of supplies.

One of the biggest takeaways for healthcare facilities in 2020 is the essential role of linens in patient care and overall safety. And it’s not just in the quality of linen cleanliness. Patient care in 2021 will have a full emphasis on the importance of a secure supply of clean linens.

Securing a linen supply is not only essential in delivering satisfactory patient care. It is also essential in protecting your biggest stakeholders against the threats of infection and cross-contamination. Shortages in linens due to demand surges have been proven dangerous for the health and wellbeing of both patients and their caregivers and medical attendants. By 2021, your linen and patient care goals should include ensuring the stability of your textile and garment supplies.
