The healthcare industry uses a lot of textiles. From bed linens and towels to scrubs and patient gowns, there are textiles all over your facility. It can be a huge expense to clean and regularly replace these linens. How can you reduce your overall cost of ownership? Here are a few things to look for in your medical textiles.
- Textiles that last – Washing linens eventually causes them to lose fibers and look tattered. Quality fabrics will not lose fibers as fast. That means you spend less money on replacing them frequently, but your patients still get to see clean sheets which can add a little comfort – an important factor when someone isn’t feeling well.
- Textiles that are anti-bacterial at a molecular level – In the past, anti-bacterial coatings were sprayed onto fabrics. This protected the textiles for a time, but use and washing would eventually wear the coating off. Researchers are now able to include anti-bacterial properties at a molecular level, so you don’t have to worry about it wearing off while your fabrics are still in good shape. These properties will last for the life of the product.
