New Display Highlights Automated System that Improves Hospital Cleanliness and Infection Control

"Our solution creates a cleaner, healthier healing environment while significantly reducing ongoing operational costs," says TransVac President Harry Pliskin

TransVac Solutions, the trusted leader in automated waste, recycling and soiled linen collection and transport solutions for hospitals, will demonstrate its system in booth 1813 at the 2014 Healthcare Design Conference (HCD) next week in San Diego, Calif.

Scheduled Nov. 15-18, HCD is the premier event devoted to how the design of responsibly built environments directly impacts the safety, operation, clinical outcomes, and financial success of healthcare facilities now and into the future. TransVac will be present to give users an understanding of how its automated waste, recycling and soiled linen systems operate.

Unlike the traditional methods of moving dirty materials manually through hospitals by means of carts, elevators and gravity chutes, the TransVac solution transports waste, recycling and soiled linen at 60 miles per hour from every floor to a central collection point typically located near the loading docks. A sealed, dedicated pipe network reduces exposure time to dirty materials by more than 80 percent compared with traditional methods. As a result, clean and dirty pathways are always separate.

“Anyone designing a healthcare facility should consider the inefficiency of manual collection and transport methods, as well as the potential infection control risks of waste and soiled linen exposure throughout a hospital,” says TransVac Solutions President Harry Pliskin.

“Our solution creates a cleaner, healthier healing environment while significantly reducing ongoing operational costs. We encourage everyone to visit us at HCD in San Diego to learn more about our best practice solution.”
