Healthcare Poly Bag Training
Hospital Housekeeping Department


Hospital Housekeeping Department

The hospital housekeeping department's main responsibility is to maintain a clean facility. Housekeeping concentrates on trash collection, floor maintenance, laundry and restroom maintenance throughout the facility. Elkay offers high and low density trash can liners, so it's easy to match the products that the facility is currently using. Mattress bags and Equipment Covers protect their contents during storage and transport, and Water Soluble bags protect the worker from contaminated contents.

Who do you call on to determine poly bag sales opportunities in the hospital housekeeping department?

The approach to the hospital housekeeping department should be made through the purchasing department with a request to learn what poly bags are being used by the department and which of those bags are supplied via a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO). If this information can be determined then concentrate your sales effort on those Elkay items that are not on GPO contracts.


  1. What poly/plastic bags are you currently using in your department?
  2. Which poly bag fills the most common need in your department?
  3. Do you have any poly bags on GPO contracts? Which ones?
  4. Are there any poly bags used that need upgrades or added features?
  5. What company is your main poly bag supplier?
  6. We provide a wide array of poly bags for hospitals. Can you supply me with a list of bags you currently use, so we can determine if my Elkay product line will bring you some added function, convenience or cost advantages?
