INFECTION PREVENTION & CONTROL


use. Choosing a machine with a quick cycle is another way to optimise time efficiency for larger volumes.


Commercial machines with specific hygiene programmes are great for infection prevention in a busy environment. These commercial machines ensure the right wash cycle times, temperatures and agitation of laundry specifically required to kill infectious diseases. They should be paired with specialist infection control detergents for safe results.


When encouraging residents do their own laundry, keeping a familiar environment may be beneficial to avoid overwhelming users with large commercial washers. Smaller machines like Miele’s Little Giant 6.5kg machine can be custom programmed for easy and simple use, just offering a small number of fixed programmes if needed.


Once you’ve decided on the best machines to wash your expected laundry loads consider any additional specialist equipment that might be needed before or after the process. For example, a sluice sink may be necessary to remove excess soiling from items before putting them through the main wash. Cleaning products, hand washing facilities and protective uniforms


or apparatus for handling soiled laundry are other things to consider, as well as dissolving bags and tongs to offer an additional safety barrier for users if necessary. Taking into account the whole process, from communication via noticeboards to storing backup drying equipment, will no doubt unearth some logistical issues which are better factored in at the beginning of


the planning process than after the equipment has been installed. As a substantial expense, it’s vital that laundry equipment and design performs effectively and keeps patients, visitors and employees safe in the clinical environment you are responsible for.
