Bedpan Washing Solutions
Bedpans are the perfect solution for anyone who is bedridden or unable to get to and from the toilet on their own easily. These devices are specially designed to fit under the body of a person who is either lying or sitting in a bed and allow them to pass urine or faeces more easily.
Once a bedpan has been used, the next issue that care home operators or hospitals face is how to ensure they are properly cleaned and disinfected to be ready for the next time they are required.
Reusable bedpans and utensils must be washed and handled correctly to prevent the spread of infection. Human waste can spread bacteria, such as C difficile, which is why it is essential that bedpans, urine bottles and other care utensils are cleaned correctly to limit exposure to pathogens.
Why A Bedpan Washing Machine is The Preferred Solution
Although it is possible to wash bedpans by hand, and indeed this may be the better option for one person living at home with carers, the preferred alternative is to use a specially designed professional bedpan cleaner. The key benefits to this type of machine include less strain on staff, less likelihood of operator error, and a safer and more efficient cleaning process that dramatically reduces the amount of handling, thus maintaining the bedpan in a disinfectant state.
