Comprehensive Rental and Laundry Program for Improved Safety and Infection Prevention
The Hidden Threat
Approximately 1 in 25 US hospital patients will contract at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI)1, costing as much as $45 billion each year2, according to the CDC.
HAIs are connected to a diversity of factors, and research demonstrate that up to 40% of HAIs can be traced to contaminated medical workers’ hands3. So it’s no surprise that hospital privacy curtains are quickly and often contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria.
The laundering of cubicle curtains is one effective method of safeguarding patients, if done in accordance with regulations. Yet not all laundering process properly remove bacteria – not to mention that changing curtains can be time-consuming and requires staff. Managing curtains and labor costs effectively while maintaining safety is no easy task for hospitals.
Additionally, patients surveyed reported a better, more positive perception when they were surrounded by a clean environment, including things patients see when lying in bed like curtains and ceilings.

Improved Staff and Patients Safety - Common methods for panel changes may seem simple, but could actually be unsafe as the process often requires a ladder. With the ImageFIRST time-saving system, panels can be replaced in less than 90 seconds.
Infection Prevention Compliance Documentation - Panels are embedded with RFID technology or barcodes, enabling in-field scanning for tracking and infection prevention documentation.
