Our commercial team have had a busy few weeks exhibiting at both The Vet Show at Excel, London and The Care Roadshow in Epsom, Surrey. Both exhibitions were really interesting and we made some great new contacts as well as catching up with some existing clients. However, the events also served as a stark reminder of the need for on-going education with regards to the hygiene requirements for commercial laundry operations, across the sectors. It is staggering that so many care homes and veterinary clinics continue to employ domestic laundry machines and dishwashers when such equipment is entirely inadequate for the environment in which they are being used. In order to comply with WRAS guidelines and hygiene regulations, is imperative that healthcare sector uses commercial machines with requisite the sluice programmes, high temperature hold, dumps valves and appropriate connections. Processing scrubs, red bag washing and animal hair requires industry specific functionality and the appropriate segregation systems in order to maintain efficient infection control.
Laundry really is a vital consideration for any healthcare environment and it is essential to adhere to the necessary guidelines. Forbes Professional offers complimentary site surveys and can deliver all of the necessary advice and equipment to help ensure full compliance with industry regulations and avoidance of cross contamination. Proud partners of Miele, Primus and Maytag, our washing machines can provide sluice and thermal disinfection, as well as employing dump valves to fully adhere to both WRAS and CQC guidelines. We can also assist with planning or CAD designs to ensure full adherence to the necessary regulations. After delivery, our clients have the peace of mind afforded by efficient hygiene control processes and full compliance as well as having access to a first-class service support.
