CINCINNATI — xpedx will help hospitals fight cross infection by developing a team of highly educated and certified professionals to serve the healthcare industry, called Healthcare Facility Advisors, according to a press release.
Healthcare reform has made the reduction of avoidable infections an economic imperative that is motivating healthcare facilities to take a broader look at how they can prevent infections; xpedx Healthcare Facility Advisors will help these facilities break the chain of cross infection, the release stated.
"Certification and improved levels of education elevate our Facility Solutions sales professionals to better assist customers in promoting healthy environments and improving their business operations," said Mary Laschinger, president of xpedx.
"This is a true distinguishing point for xpedx in the hospital facilities management marketplace," Laschinger added.
According to the release, moving well beyond the traditional definition of "clean," xpedx Healthcare Facility Advisors bring a fully integrated approach of services and products that do not just attack the issue of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs), but attack the behaviors, practices and locations where cross infections occur.
