Proper Air Flow Critical To Healthcare Laundries

When it comes to quantifying how important proper air flow is to the operation of a healthcare laundry, the numbers speak for themselves.

When it comes to quantifying how important proper air flow is to the operation of a healthcare laundry, the numbers speak for themselves. Twenty-five percent of laundries inspected by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) in 2009 were faced with having to go back and take a closer look at their facility‘s air flow before being accredited by HLAC. Though air flow was not the only contributing reason organizations did not initially pass an inspection, it was statistically significant.1

For HLAC, this confirms that proper airflow in a facility can pose one of the biggest challenges to healthcare laundries dependent on the type of improvement needed. Nevertheless, HLAC‘s efforts to promote proper airflow in healthcare laundry plants heightens industry awareness of its importance and raises the bar for excellence in operations. For laundries, it‘s an opportunity to correct or improve their processes to ensure healthcare clients receive the highest-quality textile product possible.
