Protecting your medical staff from injury or sickness is vital to a functional work environment. Not only does a safe work environment improve work flow, but it also improves overall performance. It’s important to do everything possible to protect your medical staff.
Here are some ways to protect your medical staff while they’re on the job:
Get the Right Uniforms
Few industries face the same challenges as the medical industry. Anyone could walk through the door with a variety of injuries or illnesses. Because of this, high-quality, clean uniforms are essential to ensure the most protection at all times.
Problems with Low-Quality Uniforms
Though low-quality uniforms might be cost-effective at first, they do more damage in the long run. A high-quality medical uniform helps repel fluids and will withstand the high-temperature washes needed to ensure sterility. A low-quality uniform will quickly absorb fluids and degrade during the high-intensity washing needed for the medical industry.
Use Expert Laundering Processes
Top-notch laundering practices also protect staff and patients. Medical uniforms come into contact with bacteria on a frequent basis, and need to be washed intensively. For a vital task like this, it’s helpful to work with a reliable laundry service that has extensive industry experience.
Use Quality Floor Mats
Doctors, nurses, attendants, and help desk workers spend most of their shift on their feet. Quality floor mats will protect their muscles and joints from the strain of standing.
Your staff and patients will also benefit from the improved traction and safety of durable floor mats. Weather can bring snow, rain, and salt through your doors – all of which are slip hazards. Properly placed mats throughout your medical facility will prevent floor damage and accidents.
Anti-fatigue mats are designed to provide comfort for workers on their feet. These mats are comfortable to stand on, but they also hold in dirt and moisture so your floors won’t get damaged.
Scraper mats are the first line of defense against dirt at the entrances of your medical facility. With raised cells and deep crevices, a scraper mat will hold onto dirt and debris until it’s cleaned.
Classic Floor/Logo Mats
Made of absorbent material and backed by non-slip backing, classic mats are a source of comfort and reliability. Add your logo for an easy way to enhance your decor and promote your business.
