In nursing homes, hospitals, and long-term care communities, hygiene and cleanliness are essential. Dirty and soiled sheets, scrubs, sheets, bedding, towels, and other linens contain bacteria, germs, and bloodborne pathogens that post serious health risks to staff and elderly patients who are already compromised. Properly cleaning these contaminated linens and garments in accordance with health care sanitation guidelines established by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is crucial in protecting elderly patients as well as the physicians, nurses, and other medical personnel who work in nursing homes.
