UMF Corporation, a leader in the research and development of high-performance textiles for infection prevention and commercial cleaning, has teamed with Logan’s Healthcare Linen Systems to deliver high performance PerfectCLEAN microfibre products and training to almost 20 hospitals and surgical centres in the Midwest.
In addition to offering PerfectCLEAN colour-coded products – including reusable microfibre wipers, mops, accessories and hardware – UMF Corporation partners with Logan’s to deliver its best-in-class Hygiene Specialist Training program, which introduces environmental services (ES) staff to the company’s colour-coded, ONEperROOM methodology for reducing the risk of cross-contamination throughout hospitals and surgical centres.
Through the Hygiene Specialist Training program, ES staff learns best practices for infection prevention, in-service education and effective hygiene management in patient rooms and all other areas. ES staff also earns much-deserved recognition through the program, which includes environmental hygiene specialist pin recognising their achievement.
Logan’s has provided outsourced healthcare linen and laundry services since 1925. Its track record of reliability and efficiency has established the provider as the go-to resource for healthcare specialists throughout its region, which includes Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio and West Virginia. “When I first started calling on hospitals in our area almost a decade ago, many were still using mops and rags for cleaning, and I saw an opportunity to educate them about the benefits of microfibre,” said Daisy Sims, sales manager, Logan’s Healthcare Linen Systems. “UMF Corporation’s PerfectCLEAN products were superior to any of the other microfibre products we researched.”
