Long Term Care Facilities


Long-term care (LTC) covers a variety of services which help meet both the medical and non-medical need of patients with chronic illnesses or disabilities and who cannot care for themselves for long periods of time.

It is common for long-term care to provide custodial and non-skilled care such as assisting with normal daily tasks like dressing, bathing and using the bathroom. Increasingly, long term care involves providing a level of medical care that requires the expertise of skilled practitioners to address the often multiple chronic conditions associated with older people. Long term care is provided at home, in the community, and in assisted living or in nursing homes.

Plastic Bags required by these facilities are similar to those used for common hospital storage and transport duties.

Who do you call on to determine poly bag sales opportunities in long term care facilities?

The approach to long term care facilities should be made directly with the facility manager with a request to learn what poly bags are being used and discuss what other bag applications may fit their needs.


  1. What poly/plastic bags are you currently using in your company?
  2. Which poly bag fills the most common need in your clients/patients?
  3. Are there any poly bags used that need upgrades or added features?
  4. What company is your main poly bag supplier?
  5. 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?
