The laundry organization managers understand and follow key government mandates for handling, processing, and transporting healthcare textiles.
The laundry organization is designed and maintained to provide for the health and safety of its personnel and that of the healthcare facility customer – the patient.
The laundry organization personnel, who handle healthcare textiles, are properly trained.
The laundry organization follows recommended “good industry practices” in its systems, policies, and procedures that will provide the consistent delivery of healthcare textiles in the quality and quantity expected by the customer.
The laundry organization is committed to excellence and challenging itself to meet the highest industry standards.
