Healthcare uniforms helping to reduce virus spread

Sanitary healthcare uniforms and maintaining a hygienic working environment is essential – and in the healthcare industry, it’s vital. With the rising concern over the spread of the coronavirus, hygiene practices are becoming more critical. While your staff will no doubt be well-trained in infection control and proper hygienic working methods, a hygienically clean uniform can also help. 

Preventing the spread of viruses in the workplace 

As more and more cases of the coronavirus are reported, people are becoming more concerned about infection. In the healthcare industry, there are many practices and procedures in place to prevent the disease from spreading. For both staff and visitors, it is a good idea to remind everyone of the best ways to stop the coronavirus from spreading. These include: 

  • Cover the nose and mouth with a tissue when coughing or sneezing 
  • Dispose of used tissues immediately 
  • Wash hands with soap and water regularly (or use hand sanitiser if water is not available) 

Hygienic healthcare uniforms 

Your medical staff will be well aware of infection control procedures, and the nurses’ uniforms and healthcare workwear should be part of the consideration. Contact with patients and visitors can cause germs to transfer to lab coats, medical scrubs, or nurses’ uniforms. 

Healthcare uniforms that are hygienically clean will help reduce the risk of infections and germs spreading. Providing staff with medical uniforms helps make sure they have the right clothing. Using a service partner that provides clean uniforms regularly will ensure appropriate hygiene maintenance.

A medical uniform service provides staff with hygienic and sanitised uniforms. The service partner takes care to follow the strictest hygiene and safety requirements. At Lindström, we use specific machines to deal with medical uniform cleaning. It prevents cross-contamination and allows us to clean the workwear effectively. Clean medical uniforms are transported back to you in specific packaging. This way, ensuring that they stay hygienically clean, ready for your medical staff to wear. 

Using a medical uniform service helps your staff in many ways. They will feel like a part of the team but also don’t have to worry about cleaning their uniforms or medical scrubs. Having a professional workwear laundry service to clean garments prevents staff from taking clothing home and possibly spreading infection.
