The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) is hosting a webinar that looks at the specific challenges faced by healthcare laundry professionals in order to continually learn how well their processes are working and whether their laundry standards are targeted and safe as originally intended.
The free 70-minute webinar "How Monitoring Your Laundry Processes Keeps Your Laundry Processes Effective, Targeted and Safe" is to take place at 1:00 pm. (CDT), August 14, 14.
Webinar participants are asked to register here in advance.
Experts will be on hand to discuss strategies, solutions, techniques and tools for monitoring the laundry process to ensure excellent operational quality in uncertain times and at all times.
The webinar focuses on proprietary extraction techniques that can be used to determine and quantify the most accurate representation of bioburden load on wash media:
- On hard surfaces
- In the air
- On linen
- In the water
- At the hands of the employees.
Relevant scenarios are provided that show how newly available process monitoring tools can be used to identify concerns and drive process improvements. This webinar is aimed at laundry professionals and healthcare workers whose daily interaction regularly includes laundry in healthcare. This includes relevant personnel who work in infection prevention and environmental services.
The webinar hosts include a team of professionals who helped develop the HLAC Laundry Processing Monitoring Toolkit (PMTK). HLAC is an independent certification body that inspects and accredits laundries that process textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities.
