OFF-SITE LAUNDRY

Services for patient owned laundry

All the above services will be provided as a turnkey package to customers. These services will predominantly replace one of three current structures:

✓ In-house, outsourced laundry services utilizing customer’s equipment and utilities.

✓ In-house self-managed laundry, using customer’s own staff.

✓ Outsourced linen to large companies that predominantly provide these services to large hospitals and do not place their prime focus on the skilled nursing industry.

company owned goods

Dirty linen offloaded from delivery trucks will be scanned in (utilizing RFID technology) and the systemwill log in the quantities and the nursing facilities. At this point, the linen becomes part of Eco Brite’sgeneral inventory. Linen is then loaded into a tunnel batch washer. This machine is one of the central defining components of industrial laundry. It can wash as much as 4500lbs. per operating hour or 36,000lbs per operating shift. The washed linen is then sorted by type. Sorted laundry is stored in slings and sent off either to be tumble-dried or ironed depending on the item. Flatwork is fed into feeders, which spreads and feeds them through ironers directly into folder/stackers that output stacks of linen ready for cart packing for delivery. Tumble-dried pieces are also fed into folder/stackers. A conveyor carries the folded and stacked clean laundry to be packed into carts and ready for delivery to customer.

patient goods

The plant will have a totally separate operation for the patients’ personal goods. These will be placed into large mesh bags 1 per patient. Smaller commercial washer extractors and driers will be utilized to wash and dry patient goods in their bags. The will be hung or folded and returned to bags for delivery to facility. Bags will have RFID tags to identify the facility and patient they belong to. Bags will be weighed coming in and again after processing to ensure that nothing is missing.

pick up & drop-off

With our fleet of trucks, we deliver and pick up 3 to 6 times per week. Clean linen is delivered in large carts. Soiled laundry is picked up at the same time in carts (from prior delivery). Our constant monitoring of inventory will eliminate the need of emergency delivery. However, if there is an immediate need, we have the ability to deliver linen on the same day.

Our added value

LOWER UTILITY COSTS

Laundry operations are heavy consumers of water, chemicals, electricity and natural gas. In a plant setting, the utilization factors are drastically less.

QUALITY

The quality standard achieved in a plant setting is higher due to economies of scale allowing for superior equipment, stain management removal, and easy linen replacement.

MACHINERY MAINTENANCE

Offsite laundry operation eliminates maintenance expenses and hassle.

PAYROLL COST REDUCTION

Productivity per man-hour in our plant is substantially higher than in a nursing facility. Assembly line operations along with equipment automation significantly reduce labor costs

REDUCED MANAGEMENT

Fewer personnel means less management.

The entire linen/laundry operation is removed from the facility management.

RECAPTURING REAL ESTATE

With completely outsourced linen and laundry, the facility can recapture use of the laundry space for other purposes.

USAGE + REPORTS

Ongoing usage and cost reports will enable facilities to control and manage costs.

PAY FOR USE

In-house laundry costs (like most costs in the skilled nursing care industry) are calculated on a PPD (patient per day) basis.
