The latest product in Vernacare’s product development pipeline, the detergent-proof Maxi-washbowl, is making a real difference to frontline patient care. The new size washbowl was developed collaboratively with clinicians. Its greater capacity provides a single-use solution for a variety of tasks related to patient care including leg ulcer bathing, infant bathing and emptying catheter bags, as well as a useful receptacle for hospital cleaning.
A recent study across 88 hospitals in North America showed that 62.2% of ‘clean’ plastic wash bowls were actually contaminated with pathogens including VRE and MRSA. The bowls had either been hand-washed or processed in a washer disinfector, prior to being re-used for patient care. Studies like this highlight the significant risks that reusable systems and individual products pose to patient safety.
