In the highly regulated and sanitary environment of healthcare facilities, it is essential to implement efficient and reliable measures to maintain staff and patient safety. IntelTag’s RFID Management Systems provide a robust solution to track and monitor the disposal of red contamination bags and ensure compliance with laundering and sterilisation procedures.

Streamline Infection Control Processes with Automation

In the demanding environment of healthcare, it can be a challenge to ensure adherence to stringent hygiene standards while also managing the workload of hospital staff. RFID technology provides a means to improve infection control by streamlining the inventory control of linens, towels, workwear, and other reusable assets. With RFID implementation, all processes are optimized, assets are tracked, and cleaning and sterilisation procedures are verifiable, reducing the burden on hospital staff.

The spread of microorganisms through soiled linens can pose a significant risk to patients, particularly in healthcare establishments where medical conditions are prevalent. Proper handling and processing of soiled linens, while limiting human contact, is critical in preventing the spread of infection.

Reliable 24/7 Operation with MRI Compliant RFID Technology

IntelTag’s RFID tags are specifically designed for industrial laundry use and are MRI compliant, ensuring exceptional performance in healthcare facilities even when exposed to chemical and heat sterilisation. Hospitals can trust that their red contamination bags and other infectious materials will be registered by the system, without physically having to tamper with the contaminated bags, providing peace of mind for staff and patients.

Reduce Human Touch Points in the Supply Chain

The collection and disposal of contaminated waste should be conducted with minimal physical contact to reduce the risk of medical and infection hazards. RFID radio waves eliminate the need for line-of-sight or physical contact, making the waste collection, disposal, and distribution process significantly safer and more efficient.
