MediTEX Technology is an antimicrobial, antibacterial and odor-resistant Solutions company which specializes in the development, manufacturing and marketing of antimicrobial, antibacterial textiles for the government, healthcare & commercial industry. MediTEX mission is to be an integral part of the comprehensive antimicrobial solutions necessary to prevent the spread of bacteria.
A recent University of Maryland research study revealed that 65% of medical personnel reported that they change their lab coats less than once a week, and a surprising 15% admitted they change their lab coats less than once a month. It’s not surprising that a staggering 97% of healthcare workers agreed that they are concerned about the presence of bacteria in healthcare facilities like theirs, as well as on medical textiles. Now, healthcare workers and patients can have greater peace of mind knowing that their medical textiles feature Microban antimicrobial protection that inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria on the fabric, keeping MediTEX textiles cleaner and fresher.
Clean Uniforms Can Help Hospitals ‘Cure’ $30 Billion in Infection-Related Overhead
WILMINGTON, Mass., June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — If you want to observe a sickly expression on a hospital administrator’s face, point out that the Committee to Reduce Infection Deaths (RID) says hospital-acquired infections cause more than $30 billion a year in needless healthcare industry overhead which, according to the Centers for Disease Control, conservatively reflects 1.7 million infections and 99,000 associated deaths annually. Since many infections can be traced to contaminated apparel, RID notes a partial “cure” for such unwanted costs can be found by providing medical staffs with hygienically laundered uniforms, versus having them purchase, launder, and maintain their own apparel. Infectious bacteria routinely hitchhike on the lab coats and scrubs of medical personnel who interact with patients, explains Dr. Charles P. Gerba, a professor of Environmental Microbiology at the University of Arizona. He says for many hours “those bacteria can still be alive and passed on through incidental contact with other patients.” And, according to a University of Maryland study, 65 percent of hospital personnel only change their lab coats weekly and 15 percent monthly.
"Medical staffs have demanding schedules and doing their laundry in a hygienic manner may be difficult for them,” says Adam Soreff of UniFirst, a leading supplier of uniforms and work apparel programs to businesses throughout the U.S. and Canada. “That’s why specialized uniform rental services make sense.”
