An acute care 460-bed hospital providing healthcare to a five-county Florida region struggled with supply and linen management leading to wasted resources and unnecessary costs.
Without controls, supplies were a “free for all” and linen was being misused and thrown out at an alarming rate. There was a lack of education and training for hospital staff.
Xanitos leadership understood that a dual approach was necessary to curb employee behavior. End-users had to be educated on proper utilization and controls had to be set up to align with proper behavior:
The results were immediate. With improved usage behavior, proper PAR levels established and controls implemented, supplies and linen waste was reduced while requests from units also decreased as a result of being properly resourced.
Financial data comparing before and after Xanitos took ownership of supplies and linen saw a realized savings of 18% compared to the hospital’s supply spend the year before.
Xanitos has changed the way hospitals are cleaned to provide your patients and staff a safer healthcare environment. Today we serve nearly 100 Medical Centers across the US.
