Hospitals are faced with the task of handing over thousands of pieces of work clothes, laundry, washing, ironing, sorting, storage and other processes every year, and it is a great challenge to effectively track and manage the washing process, the number of times of washing, the status of inventory and the effective categorization of each piece of clothing. 1;
1. Paper-based handover of laundry tasks is complicated and difficult to trace; 2. Fear of cross-contamination makes it impossible to count the number of items to be washed; 3. Mismatch between the number of washes and the task; 4. Each step of the washing process cannot be accurately monitored, and clothes are missed; 5. Accurate sorting of laundry to save storage space; 6. It is not possible to accurately arrange the minimum safety stock for each item of laundry.
The introduction of RFID technology will make the hospital's laundry management more transparent and improve efficiency, solving management problems that could not be achieved through other technologies, such as statistics and handover of large quantities of laundry to be washed.
RFID laundry management principle
RFID laundry tags are sewn onto each item of laundry, with a unique global identification code, i.e. each item of laundry will have a unique management identity until the laundry is scrapped (tags can be reused, but not beyond the life of the tag itself). In the whole clothing use, washing management, will through the RFID read-write automatically record the clothing use status, washing times. It supports the batch reading of tags during the handover of laundry, making the handover of laundry tasks simple and transparent and reducing labour costs. At the same time, by tracking the number of washings, the hospital can predict the current service life of the laundry and provide predictive data for procurement planning.
First, Cloth data entry, RFID tags sewn into clothing The chip in the tag can store data, associate the attributes of each laundry to be managed with the RFID tag ID into the database, record and track the workflow and life cycle of each laundry, and sew directly onto the laundry to be managed, with the sewing location chosen as an easy to find place.
Second, Fabric data entry, RFID tags sewn into clothing The chip in the tag stores data, associates the attributes of each piece of laundry to be managed with the RFID tag ID in the database, records the workflow and life cycle of each piece of laundry to be tracked and sewn directly onto the laundry to be managed, with the sewing location chosen as an easy to find place.
Third, The number of fabric inventory Handover by hospital staff allows for quick handover of quantities by configuring handheld devices.
RFID fabric washing advantages 1、Labor can be reduced by 40-50%; 2、Visualisation of more than 99% of laundry products, reducing the risk of missing laundry; 3. Improved supply chain management will reduce working service time by 20-25%; 4、Improve the accuracy and reliability of storage information; 5、Efficient and accurate data collection to provide operational efficiency; 6、Automatic data collection for distribution and recycling handover to reduce human errors; 7、Reduce the comprehensive cost of hospital laundry management.
