Did you know that billions of dollars are spent every year as the direct result of health-care acquired infections? Coming to a close total of 100,000 or more deaths per year, hospital infections are the leading cause of in-hospital deaths next to either breast or prostate cancer. Due to these astounding numbers, the FDA has been working hard to assure that more single-use products are used in the medical industry.
Avoiding hospital-acquired infections doesn’t have to be difficult. Instead of relying on equipment to be sterile 24/7, you can make a switch to harmless, single-use products that don’t carry the risk of bacteria.
Each urinal is made of an ultra-soft cardboard pulp with a gentle textured long neck, great for nurses or care-takers assisting others with urination. The quality-of-life feature that really makes this a better choice is outer slip-proof texture, preventing any nasty mid-stream spills.
A disposable urinal in general is soft to the touch and fairly warm. During use, this provides an optimal urination experience without the hassle of a cold shock. The inside of the portable urinal also features some additional support and lining, stopping the possibility of leaks from beginning to end.
Hospitals have been stepping up their game over the last few years. Any of them that are equipped with a macerated, have made great strides towards removing reusable products. To avoid contamination risk, macerators serve as a means to sterilize and destroy any waste that enters.
Firstly, any macerate items that have been used are added to the laundry-machine like chamber on the top. The provided waste is then chopped to shreds by a number of blades while flushing the remaining matter down the drain. What’s left is a completely clean macerator and not a trace of leftover products. This helps maintain a clean and sterile environment, as the urinal can no longer come in contact with another person or piece of equipment.
Cross-contamination is the number one cause of hospital-related illnesses. Products such as catheters or reusable toilets can retain bacteria from previous uses if they’re not washed or maintained properly. In a worst-case scenario, the microbiota growing on the outside of these devices can enter through either the urethra or an open cut or sore.
Switching to the pulp is an easy way to reduce the possibility of cross-contamination. A bathroom device never has to be the cause of a preventable disease or infection ever again when you’re using an AMG Medical Disposable Pulp Urinal.
