Have you noticed that online reviews are playing a major role in patient choices when it comes to healthcare? That means controlling the patient’s experience matters. Of course, no one goes to the hospital to have a good time, but there are some simple and affordable things that a medical facility can do to improve the patient’s experience. One that is often overlooked is the quality of the linens used at the facility. Here are three ways that linens can affect a patient’s stay:
- Cleanliness – Fresh, clean linens are always appreciated when a person isn’t feeling well and is surrounded by illness. It’s good for your patients and for your staff. Of course, you can’t throw all linens away after each use, but if you change them out regularly enough and use a high-quality product that washes well, you have the perfect combination for a clean environment.
- Comfort – Most people don’t associate hospital bed sheets and patient gowns with comfort. However, the right sheets and gown can make it easier for a patient to rest and recover. Fabrics that are soft and plush can create a more relaxing environment, even when a person is in the hospital. That adds up to an increase in patient satisfaction.
- Warmth – How often do patients complain about the temperature in hospitals? You can’t crank up the heat, but what you can do is offer quality gowns, sheets, and blankets that provide warmth and thus add to comfort and patient satisfaction.
