WHY HLAC - EXPERTISE/HLAC BOARD

EXPERTISE - Professional Expertise to Make a Difference

 

HLAC’s success in developing and maintaining the highest level of professional standards is beholden to the expertise of the men and women who compose our Board of Directors, Inspectors and Advisory Committee.

Their experience – diverse, qualified, and relevant – is making a significant
difference in the way the best laundries process healthcare textiles in the name of patient safety and infection prevention.

Important Notice About the HLAC Accreditation Program

 

An HLAC inspector’s assessment of a provider’s facility and processes for the production of hygienically clean reusable healthcare textiles is based on the integrated requirements, best practices, and guidance from diverse entities adopted by reference in the 2016 HLAC Accreditation Standards. HLAC inspectors are not certified as state or federal surveyors nor should compliance with HLAC Standards be interpreted as state or federal certified compliance with all state or federal regulations.  Neither are HLAC inspectors qualified to certify compliance with local regulations or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Laundries are typically inspected only once every three years but may be inspected more frequently.  The laundry undertakes to maintain the accreditation standards throughout the three years but HLAC makes no warranties to this effect.  HLAC DISCLAIMS ALL LIABILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OR OMISSIONS OF PARTICIPATING LAUNDRIES.
