This CE session is part of the 2022 Symposium on Healthcare Value Analysis & Infection Prevention. Presenters Michael Overcash, Lynne Sehulster and John Scherberger explore the evidence relating to reusable healthcare textiles’ role in healthcare-acquired infection prevention as well as describe the findings in the medical literature that reusable healthcare textiles contribute to the reduction of environmental impact, including on climate, water, and solid waste compared to disposables. They also examine the life cycle of reusable healthcare textiles and the cost savings they can contribute to the institutional bottom line. Additionally, they will explain why patient-care healthcare textiles are laundered separately from textile products used by environmental services, and how modern laundry operations and processes help keep patients safe by providing a hygienically clean HCT product.
