How to Choose the Right Linen Rental Service for Your Medical Office
PRODUCT, QUALITY, DEPENDABILITY AND PRICING IS KEY WHEN CHOOSING THE RIGHT LINEN RENTAL SERVICE FOR YOUR MEDICAL OFFICE
Do you find yourself for the first time looking for a linen rental service for a new or existing medical office or are you looking to improve your current service? Possibly you also could be looking for a more cost-effective solution?
Here are 4 key questions you need to ask when looking to fulfill your medical linen rental needs.
What type of products will I need? A variety of reusable linen products are available to medical offices today within a linen rental program, programs include rental items such as towels, sheets, exam gowns and blankets.
If you don’t currently have a healthcare linen rental service here are a few things to think of before you receive your cost projection.
- How many patients do I see a day
- What items do I need for my patient’s comfort
- How many exam rooms do I have
- Do I need any uniform items such as scrubs or lab coats and how many employees do I have
Quality matters for patient satisfaction – When choosing a linen rental company it is a good idea to not only see what the products look like new but what will the products look like after the second or third delivery cycle.
Dependability – Knowing you can count on a linen rental service keeps you focused on what you do best and worry less about your linen delivery or product quality. A professional healthcare linen rental supplier should be able to give you an outline how they handle snow emergencies, vacations, holidays and emergency deliveries.
Understand your pricing structure – A common occurrence with customers looking to compare linen rental companies is they usually don’t understand what they are being billed for. A fair billing percentage is to project your weekly usage and keeping in mind room stock, low pricing doesn’t always represent the most cost effective program when it comes to billing percentages with a healthcare linen rental service.
Also, get a clear understanding if you will be charged for miscellaneous items such as bag stands, bags, bio-hazard and other items commonly found within the industry.
We look forward to helping you determine what products are best suited for your practice and what the most cost-effective solution will be.
