Maintaining Nursing Homes with a Powered Dirty Linen Cart

February 21, 2011 By: CartPro Category: Nursing Homes, Productivity Tips, Safety and Ergonomics

Keeping a nursing home clean and orderly can be a challenge for the staff.  The physical demand of the job begs the aid of powered equipment, but narrow halls and small crowded rooms limit the type of equipment that can be used.  Some residents of nursing home may be easily disturbed or agitated so management and staff also need to be conscious of noise levels while performing regular duties.

The powered dirty linen cart from DJ Products provides the perfect solution for a nursing home environment.  A powered dirty linen cart is easily capable of hauling loads of up to seven hundred pounds, drastically reducing the stress and strain on staff and helping to minimize the possibility of injury.

The powered dirty linen cart is easily maneuverable, even in constrained paces and can travel at speeds of up to 3 miles per hour over a variety of surfaces.  In many nursing home environments, employees are required to push heavy carts over thick carpeting which can pose an additional challenge even for some motorized carts.  The powered dirty linen cart travels just as effortlessly across carpeted surfaces as it does across smooth surfaces making it an ideal piece of equipment for environments with a variety of flooring.

In addition to taking the stress and strain off of the hardworking nursing home staff, the powered dirty linen cart also has advantages for the residents.  The powered dirty linen cart is fast and virtually silent during operations so staff members can quickly and quietly complete their required duties with any disruption to resident activities.

Keeping nursing home employees healthy and residents happy is difficult if the right type of equipment isn’t available to help with specific job duties.  Adding a powered dirty linen cart is a great way to increase staff efficiency while minimizing the chance for injury at the same time as eliminating many of the noise related disturbances to residents.

The Powered Dirty Linen Cart Makes Clean Up a Breeze

The environment in the hospitality industry can be very fast paced.  The crew responsible for removing dirty linens must work quickly to ensure that rooms and suites are in order and as clean as possible for the arrival time of new guests.  Cleaning crews don’t always have the luxury of taking as much time as they need to get a room in order and there is rarely an instance when a number of additional hands are available to help push and overloaded cart.

A cart that is fully loaded with soiled linens can easily way several hundred pounds and thickly carpeted rooms and hallways make pushing those carts and even bigger struggle.  A single employee attempting to manually strong arm a full cart could easily result in injury that leads to missed days of service or possibly even costly worker’s compensation claims.

The best way to ensure fast and efficient service and the safety of every member of your crew is to offer the best equipment for the job.  The powered dirty linen cart from DJ Products has the right design and plenty of power to make changing linens in even the largest of hotels and resorts easy.

The powered dirty linen cart lets a single employee safely handle a cart that is loaded with up to seven hundred pounds of soiled linens.  The powered dirty linen cart handles easily around tight spaces and narrow corridors and has a variable speed adjustment of 1-3 miles per hour to help get the job done as quickly as possible.

Using the best possible equipment can have a profound effect on employee performance.  The powered dirty linen cart from DJ Products will increase a cleaning crew’s efficiency, allowing them to be better prepared to service the guests, at the same time that it reduces the chance for employee injury.
