According to the CDC, disposable curtains have a required laundering process. “Fabrics, textiles, and clothing used in health-care settings are disinfected during laundering and generally rendered free of vegetative pathogens (i.e., hygienically clean), but they are not sterile. Laundering cycles consist of flush, main wash, bleaching, rinsing, and souring. Cleaned wet textiles, fabrics, and clothing are then dried, pressed as needed, and prepared (e.g., folded and packaged) for distribution back to the facility.”
Cubicle curtains require an extensive, non-eco-friendly laundering process that doesn’t even sterilize them. And it’s not the launderer’s fault. Some strains of bacteria simply won’t wash away keeping the risk of hospital-acquired infections around wash after wash.
With disposable curtains and the need for laundering eliminated, you can make the first step towards making your healthcare facility more eco-friendly.
Why Eco-Friendly Curtains?
Running an eco-friendly facility helps you reduce your impact on the environment and preserves natural resources. As an added bonus, promoting your eco-friendly curtains can set your facility apart from your competitors and attract new customers who perceive you as a facility that cares. With eco-friendly curtains:
- No laundering is necessary. All Curtains are disposable and therefore offer 100% savings in laundering costs.
- Disposable curtains can be recycled, a far more environmentally friendly alternative to washing.
- Designed with a strong material that prevents the growth and transportation of bacteria.
