Laundries can be held accountable to reduce soil to a microbial level that is definitively hygienically clean, a longstanding European practice new to North America, according to a white paper — "Nothing Left Behind: Quantifying Hygienically Clean Removes All Doubt." The white paper, sponsored by TRSA, is available on the American Hospital Association Health Forum website.
The shift enables healthcare providers to include laundry in efforts to determine quality through scientific assessment of performance as opposed to softer measures, according to the report.
Gauging the eradication of microbes from laundry quantifies cleanliness according to the ISO directive stating that only product-specific testing, not measures of production processes, can reliably indicate product quality.
