Angelica Notes Several Reasons Why You Are Better Off in a Hospital That Uses Professional Healthcare Linens

Cross-contamination from linens is a huge issue for your health, which is why it's so important that your hospital uses a professional healthcare linen service.

    NORCROSS, GA, March 12, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When we enter a hospital, we expect the very best care available. Yet, some hospitals are unable to give exactly that. There are a wide range of reasons why a hospital might not be up to par, but one of the most common, and least noticed, reasons is that the hospital has not used a professional healthcare linen service to launder its linens.

Angelica Corporation, a medical laundry service, has noticed that some hospitals see their laundering of linens as a place where costs can be cut. These facilities see linens as an aspect of hospital life that can be handled either in-house or by an unaccredited outside company. This leads to the hospital being populated by linens that have not been sanitized the way hospital linens should be, which can increase the risk of infection.

Only a professional hospital linen service like Angelica Corporation has the ability to properly sanitize and maintain a hospital's linen supply. Angelica Corporation is able to reduce infection and cross-contamination in hospitals by properly disinfecting and sanitizing all of the linens that you would encounter during your hospital stay. This is vital to your health and safety as cross-contamination, which can occur through contact with improperly cleaned linens, is one of the biggest health risks that patients encounter in a hospital.

When you are planning your hospital stay, be sure to ask the hospital how they clean and maintain their linens. If their response involves anything other than using a medical linen service, recommend that the administrators visit and demand properly sanitized linens.
