Standard Textile is pleased to provide an educational session on-demand as part of the digital event. AORN members may receive two free continuing education contact hours from our seminar:,“The Role of Textiles in Creating a Safer and Healthier Perioperative Environment.”
Our educational program focuses on:
A strategic supply chain solution, reusable products, including sterile drapes, wrappers, Level 3 OR gowns, Level 4 OR gowns, and Level 1 and 2 isolation gowns can play a critical role in creating a safe, sustainable perioperative environment for the long-term.
At Standard Textile, we restructured our supply chain and manufacturing to support the healthcare industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. We added shifts across our operations, from fabric weaving to cut and sew operations, and have supplied hundreds of thousands of OR gowns and PPE’s to help during the COVID-19 crisis, and will continue to support the industry as the pandemic continues to evolve.
In addition to our partnership with AORN and its membership, we have a team experts, as well as available resources, to help with analysis and implementation of a comprehensive reusable textile program.
The past year has placed an immense amount of stress on the healthcare industry. Standard Textile is proud to support essential workers and is thankful for all they have done and continue to do. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. We are here to assist you with your needs for your perioperative practice.
