RCS Receives National Endorsements
We are excited to announce that RCS is now being endorsed and recommended by both Burlington Medical and BarRay. We are proud to be working with both of these great manufacturing leaders. Together, we are working to set new “Best Practice Standards” for x-ray garment cleanliness throughout the healthcare industry. Stay tuned for new releases from both of these companies in the days ahead!
Radiological Care Services (RCS) is a privately held business entity headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. What started as a garment cleaning company in 2013 has since evolved into the world’s first, comprehensive x-ray garment solutions provider. RCS provides “One Stop Shopping” for all of your x-ray garment needs. Our customers appreciate full continuity of care, provided through our full-service model, which includes the following:
- Scheduled garment cleaning and sanitization services
- Inventory management support and garment RFID Tagging
- Complimentary garment repairs (while at our facilities for scheduled service)
- Radiographic scanning services (X-ray scans to check for holes, cracks and tears)
- Service documentation provided for Joint Commission / HFAP purposes
- Help sourcing new garments, equipment and other accessories as needed
Acquiring ringworm from PPE while on the job was not a pleasant experience! After years of wearing sweaty, soiled and “less than sanitary” protective X-ray garments in facilities, we began to study and examine the associated infection control risks and developed a proprietary, multi-step, cleaning & sanitization system based upon cleaning guidelines provided by the CDC, JCAHO, HFAP and AORN.
BOTTOM LINE - We identified there were several infection control and prevention measures in place within facilities today, but that x-ray wearables and aprons were often overlooked and were simply returned to the rack with contamination in-tact for use in the next case.
Trevor, Matt, and Brandon are having fun with some new customers in the great state of Michigan!
Meet the RCS Team
Zac has worked in the medical field for 15 years, and has been selling orthopedic implants the last 12 years. This experience has taught Zac the values of great service and great partnerships. Zac has done business with most hospitals in central Indiana over the past 12 years and values the working relationships that he has developed with these health systems.
Over the past several years Zac has spearheaded the development of the RCS proprietary, multi-step process for servicing protective X-ray garments. This process documents and provides tangible results at an affordable price. This new system will benefit hospitals in helping to reduce their liability, through aiding in the decontamination and disinfection of a frequently neglected high-touch surface. The process will also deliver odor free x-ray wearables in a manner that is convenient to each individual customer.
The demands & expectations on hospital staff are ever increasing, with increased quality benchmarks and such a growing emphasis on “outcomes.” The Affordable Care Act and Value Based Purchasing have elevated the ramifications & penalties on health systems specifically for HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infections) and SSI (Surgical Site Infections.) Zac identified the need for a hospital partner that would assist in the care of a neglected piece of hospital equipment (x-ray garments) so the staff can better focus their time on patient care and to help the health system further reduce their potential for HAIs/SSIs.
