A hospital linen trolley is a type of mobile cart used to transport and store linens and other supplies in healthcare settings. It is also known as a hospital linen cart or a hospital laundry cart. Hospital linen trolleys typically have several shelves or baskets that can hold linens such as sheets, blankets, towels, and gowns, as well as other supplies such as gloves, masks, and cleaning materials. The trolley is often made of stainless steel or other durable materials that can withstand frequent use and disinfection.
Hospital linen trolleys are used by healthcare staff to collect, distribute, and organize linens and other supplies throughout the facility. They can be used in a variety of settings, including patient rooms, surgical suites, and laundry facilities.
It is important to use hospital linen trolleys properly and follow proper infection control protocols to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. The trolley should be cleaned and disinfected regularly, and linens and other supplies should be handled and stored properly to prevent contamination. Healthcare providers should also follow proper hand hygiene practices before and after handling linens or using the trolley.
