K-Bro Linen Systems Inc, a healthcare and hospitality linen provider serving Canada since 1954, has recently achieved the Hygienically Clean Healthcare certification for its Edmonton, Alberta and Regina, Saskatchewan plants. Other K-Bro plants holding Hygienically Clean certifications include Healthcare at the Burnaby, British Columbia location, and both Healthcare and Hospitality at the Calgary, Alberta location.
Hygienically Clean is the quantified, validated standard and measure for hygienically clean textiles in North America since 2011. Achieving this certification reflects a laundry’s commitment to best management practices (BMPs) in laundering as verified by on-site inspection and their capability to produce hygienically clean textiles as quantified by ongoing microbial testing based on established hygienically clean healthcare textile methods and standards.
Objective experts in epidemiology, infection control, nursing and other healthcare professions work with Hygienically Clean launderers to ensure the certification continues to enforce the highest standards for producing clean healthcare textiles.
“Congratulations to K-Bro on their most recent certifications,” said Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO. “This achievement proves their commitment to infection prevention and that their laundries take every step possible to prevent human illness.”
Hygienically Clean reflects the evolution of healthcare laundry certification in light of growing global concerns about infection control, documenting practices that ensure elimination of potentially harmful microbial content while adding quantifiable verification of continuous improvement in overall cleanliness.
