Welcome to the future of intelligent textile management for healthcare facilities

Managing scrubs and linen in your hospital: a major challenge thus far


Scrub and linen loss can be very costly for healthcare organizations. It is estimated that 75-90% of healthcare textiles are lost before reaching their useful life. Why does this occur?

When thousands of uniforms and linens are used each day and hospital administrators have no way to monitor and track inventory, items are often lost, misplaced, hoarded by employees, and sometimes thrown away.

How bad is the issue? For North American hospitals, textile loss is estimated to cost the healthcare industry around $840 million per year! At ABG Systems, our goal is to help the North American healthcare industry minimize this number.

Why use an RFID system?

RFID tags are a commonly used means of tracking hospital assets and textiles. RFID tagging will not only allow your hospital to gain the highest level of inventory control possible, but will also give rise to many additional benefits:
• Integrate any mix of items into your dispensing and tracking process (scrubs, hospital gowns, hospital linen, etc.). Any mix of items can be dispensed from the same machine
• Conduct complete inventory counts within seconds with an RFID reader
• Minimize machine loading time and labour involvement
• Generate detailed reports to analyze usage and lost items. Compare reports with loss reports from laundry service provider to see if items may have been lost in transit to the laundry
• Leverage the data that is generated each time an RFID tag is read (monitor textile life cycles, track damage from sharps left in uniforms back to end users to educate on harmful impacts, flag items that have reached their maximum number of washes, etc.)

Worried about the cost of RFID tags?
