Linens Role in Germ Prevention

Healthcare Linens – The Gatekeeper of Germ Prevention

When it comes to germ prevention, having hygienically clean linens is the key to success, especially when you are running a healthcare facility. Over the last few years, many of our healthcare customers have experienced the benefits of our hygienically clean laundering service, while eliminating the disadvantages of in-house laundering.

We take patient care seriously, and we are proud to do our part by delivering germ-free linens for area medical facilities. Just as you sanitize and clean every inch of your medical facility to ensure patient safety, germ prevention and avoid cross contamination – we do the same with our linen programs. This ensures your facility has germ-free, high-quality bedding, towels, scrubs, mops, mats and more to support your facility programs.

Hygienically Clean Laundering Processes

At GenMed, our medical division of General Linen, we have a process that ensures that you will truly get hygienically clean and sterile linens delivered to your facility.

  • All of our laundering processes are handled electronically – from our wash cycles and time, to the water temperatures and chemicals – ensuring we don’t miss a beat when it comes to being hygienically clean.
  • All linens are washed at 160°F in order to kill any germs that could be living on the linens.
  • Third party vendors monitor and audit the chemicals used to wash our products.
  • To further assure sanitized linen products, we use chlorine bleach and, seal sterilized and cleaned linens in plastic for added protection.

Additionally, our GenMed employees work hard to make sure they are healthy and safe when handling your linens. Every employee is offered Hepatitis “B” vaccinations and receives blood-borne pathogen training. Additionally, all protective equipment is properly maintained and sanitized daily.

We recognize that no healthcare facility has a one-size-fits-all approach, which means we won’t give you a one-size-fits-all linen management program. We work with you to align your needs and demands to create a medical linen management program that is a perfect fit for your business.

When you choose General Linen for your healthcare linen management program, you will get accurate pricing, established property inventory levels, and account handling protocols to guarantee you get the best service possible.
