It is a condition of using washable scrubs for them to be removed before leaving work and returned for laundering at the end of every shift.
Many employees are failing to return their washable scrubs for laundering at the end of their shifts or storing them for later use. This can affect important areas of clinical operations as they are supplied for use in high-risk areas to add another layer of safety, above and beyond PPE requirements.
Please be sure to return them to the lime green linen bags and not the standard linen bags so that our linen service can prioritise them for laundering and prompt return.
The laundering service benefits all of the employees who use them, so please ensure we’re all doing the right thing to support our colleagues and providing the safest care for our patients and the community.
