PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. — When it comes to preventing germs in hospitals the focus is typically on patient room related items: cleaning the room, donning gowns, wearing masks or gloves, using hand sanitizer, etc. One thing that can be overlooked are the linens and related items that literally surround the patient.
Healthcare items like scrubs, sheets, blankets, pillowcases, bed pads and mattress covers should be handled and processed in accordance with strict guidelines to ensure they do not pass along infections. Unfortunately, the possibility of cross contamination with health care linens can be far too high. The best way to avoid this type of contamination in the laundry is to use a barrier machine. Barrier machines have two separate doors and are designed to be built into a wall creating one room for the dirty laundry and a separate room for clean which keeps soiled linens completely separated from clean to avoid cross contamination.
B&C Technologies has barrier machines available in sizes from 60 pound through 485 pound capacities.
