What It Means to Be HLAC-Certified

At Spin Linen, we take pride in working with healthcare facilities for their healthcare linen needs, and we take healthcare linen processing very seriously. Because we’re dedicated to providing our customers with the best services, we are one of only two facilities in Nebraska to be certified by the Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council, or HLAC for short.

The Only HLAC Certified Linen Management Company in Nebraska

We also are the only HLAC-certified linen company in Nebraska that specializes in rentals. Being certified by the HLAC means we’ve passed their inspection of our policies and procedures, training programs, as well as protocols and adherence to regulatory body requirements, ensuring:

  • Patient Safety: HLAC Certification means that we adhere to best practices for the preparation and laundry of hygienically clean, reusable healthcare textiles for patient care.
  • Continuous Quality Improvement: Spin Linen as a company has  committed to a new level of excellence in the way we process healthcare linens and textiles
  • Operational Excellence: every touchpoint for healthcare linens ensure the proper handling and transportation, laundering and finishing of the goods, as well as exceptional customer service for our customers.
  • Highest standards: We hold ourselves to the highest standards for processing healthcare linens for our customers. Our strict adherence to federal government regulations and guidelines helps our customers provide patient safety.

The Healthcare Laundry Accreditation Council has been around for 16 years and has accredited over 100 laundries across the country. They are a nonprofit organization made up of 12 board members and independent contractors with expertise and experience in the healthcare laundry industry. Their accreditation standards received the Seal of Recognition from the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses, or AORN, in 2015. This means their standards have met AORN’s standards for safe patient care. 

Being HLAC-certified means that we are committed to working with healthcare facilities to ensure they are getting the best, and safest, linen products and management programs possible. This dedication by our staff gives us a competitive advantage in the market. We can guarantee our customers won’t get this type of service anywhere else. We’re proud to say we’ve been HLAC certified for ten years, and we strive to make sure the HLAC standards are upheld for all of our healthcare linen customers.
