INSPECTING, ACCREDITING FOR MORE THAN A DECADE

The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council (HLAC) is an independent credentialing body that inspects and accredits laundries processing textiles for hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare facilities.

 

As a public service, HLAC’s core purpose is to establish and maintain criteria and procedures for accreditation.

 

These standards for HLAC accreditation are developed based on federal regulations and guidelines as well as industry best practices for infection prevention in linen processing.

HLAC ACCREDITATION AND STANDARDS

The HLAC Accreditation Standards document covers the complete textile processing cycle, from handling and transporting, to laundering and finishing, to customer service.

 

HLAC accreditation, which is good for three years, means that a healthcare laundry meets these standards.

 

Accreditation affirms that a laundry organization that processes healthcare linens has successfully passed an inspection of its facility, policies and procedures, training programs, and its relationship with its healthcare customers.

PMTK: A LOGICAL OUTGROWTH
OF HLAC EXPERTISE

HLAC has a board of directors that includes an independent and highly experienced group of professionals from all relevant aspects of the healthcare laundry industry.

 

As such, the HLAC Laundry Process Monitoring ToolKit™ is a logical outgrowth of this expertise.

 

In developing the toolkit, HLAC is responding to the challenge for operators to continually know how well their processes are performing and whether their standards are on target as originally intended.
