Labour can be further reduced by permanently installing passive RFID readers in key locations to track linen movement or monitor problem areas. These fixed readers capture data in real-time without human intervention which leads to enhanced operational insight from the collected data. Using RFID to proactively monitor a high-risk area is a proven way of increasing patient and staff safety.
The RFID tags used for tracking must withstand the rigors of sanitizing linens and patient gowns to prevent infections. This simplifies that only the most durable RFID tags can be used. The use of RFID technology to track items through the commercial laundry process vastly improves inventory management, reducing loss and enabling real-time asset visibility.
Moreover, the efficiency of operational processes is greatly enhanced with the RFID capability to automatically identify and sort linens, garments, and other textiles, even while in bulk bags.
