ANNISTON, Ala. - March 21, 2020 - PRLog -- To help protect your staff and your patients, you should follow this protocol regarding the cleaning of lab coats, scrubs, and linens:

• Lab coats.  They need to be washed every day.
• Scrubs.  They need to be washed every day.
• Linens and towels.  They need to be washed after every use.

    Medical and dental professionals should always wear scrubs and/or labcoats.

   Lab coats and scrubs should not be taken home or worn outside of the facility..

   Do not bring labcoats, scrubs, or linens to your home.  Do not wear them to and from work.  Change in and out of your scrubs and labcoats at work.  If you do not have a changing room, use a designated examination room.

Check all pockets for sharps or other items, deposit in plastic bags (one for whites, one for colors to reduce contact when transferring to washers)

     Launder your labcoats, scrubs, and linens onsite or have a laundry service pick-up and deliver.

     If you wash them, use the warmest water setting allowed by the care label.  According to the CDC (   "Launder items as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely."

    Set the dryer temperature to a minimum of 140 degrees. Home- style dryers will not normally reach this temperature.

    If you do not have on-site facilities to launder your lab coats, scrubs, towels and linens, we can help,  We provide this service to Calhoun County AL with pick-up and delivery included.
