University Hospital Dresden combines cabinet and room solution for optimal laundry management.
Since 2016, UHF RFID-chipped clothing items have been used at the Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital in Dresden both as workwear and as flat linen. For the workwear, 84 dispensing cabinets along with two room solutions are installed at 13 different locations within the university hospital. 55 return machines are distributed across 15 locations.
A total of 100,000 items of workwear are in circulation between the laundry and the hospital. A large proportion of these are rented linen; in special areas with special requirements, such as transport, the hospital's own workwear is also used.
