Veterinary and Equine practice is not immune from the risk of hospital acquired infections and these are occurring more and more. Therefore it’s vitally important to continually review infection control procedures which include the washing of clothes, bedding and blankets.
There is real need to make sure that there is a process for ensuring that all laundry is washed and disinfected to kill bacteria and reduce any spread of infection.
Sometimes this aspect of infection control can be overlooked, with a belief that a hot wash in a domestic washing machine will help to disinfect veterinary laundry. This is simply not the case and it is necessary to have commercial laundry equipment with a dedicated thermal disinfection programme.
Laundry 365 can help to eradicate infection with the implementation of a state-of-the-art, validated Ozone disinfection system which also helps met the requirements of CFPP 01-04. Ozone disinfection means that an effective infection control process can be implemented, whilst reducing energy costs and cycle times.
Laundry 365 can also supply auto dosing equipment and a range of effective laundry chemicals including bio and non-bio detergents, destainers and softeners – which do not need a manual intervention to ensure the correct amount of product is used in every wash cycle. Laundry 365 can supply, install, maintain and repair a wide range of commercial laundry equipment from leading brands.
Note: Ozone is proven to eradicate viruses and superbugs such as MRSA, C Difficile, E-Coli, Norovirus et al. making the use of Ozone ideal for a veterinary environment.
Note: HSG (95) 18 guidelines are superseded by CFPP-01-04 from 2012
