Hospital Maternity/Pediatric Departments


Hospital Maternity and Pediatric Departments

The hospital maternity department cares for expectant mothers and newborn infants. Plastic bags play a large role in providing patient belongings bags (when patients arrive) and non-woven polypropylene bags containing gifts for the mother and baby as well as paraphernalia for the trip home.

Who do you call on to determine poly bag sales opportunities in the hospital maternity and pediatric departments?

The approach to hospital maternity and pediatric departments should be made through the purchasing or materials 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?
