Reminder: When a cart is near, please stay clear!

April 22, 2020  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Preventing patient and employee harm is a major component of the organization’s journey to high reliability. As such, the Laundry Services, Environmental Services, and Safety Management leadership teams would like to remind you to please politely share the hallways with linen carts. 

A full laundry cart can weigh hundreds of pounds and can be difficult for the Linen Distribution and Environmental Services team members to maneuver and see around them.

As Michigan Medicine’s journey to high reliability continues, please be courteous and remember to:

  • Share hospital hallways with linen carts.
  • Take a few seconds — and a few steps — to allow carts to pass.
  • Help warn others nearby who may not be watching out to do the same.

Thank you in advance for your support!
