Healthcare Poly Bag Training
Nursing and Patient Care


Nursing and patient care involves taking care of the day-to-day needs of patients in hospitals, long-term care facilities and hospice care. Poly bags for this area include bags for handling and transport of soiled linen and waste, general storage bags, bags for storing and transport of patient's personal belongings and more.

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

The approach to nursing/patient care 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?
