Healthcare Standards & Policies
Hygienically Clean inspectors verify a healthcare laundry’s own processes – its systems, procedures, etc. for ensuring that product being shipped from the laundry is clean and free from any danger to the patient.
Inspections place significant weight on factors such as design, equipment, practices, training, protocols and adherence to regulatory body requirements.
Hygienically Clean validates that a laundry’s own operational processes have been independently inspected and adhere to domestic and internationally recognized infection prevention and control policies.
Hygienically Clean Standards were established to monitor the complete textile processing cycle, from handling and transporting soiled healthcare textiles, to in-plant processing and delivery back to the customer.
The Standard guides our customers in documenting the policies and procedures they follow to produce Hygienically Clean Healthcare linens.
Quality Assurance Manuals must be created to demonstrate compliance with various requirements from the facility layout, personnel training, and OSHA required practices, including Bloodborne Pathogen Exposure Control Standards, and many more.
