We have all heard our mother’s remind us to “wash your hands” before a meal. Mother’s know best is certainly an understatement in this regard. The spreading of unwanted microorganisms is not only a priority at homes, in schools and other public places, but primarily in clinical settings. I remember ending up in a hospital with my newborn baby after being hit by a wrecklace driver. Fortunately, we were both fine, however, my two month old baby ended up with a serious infection a few days after being passed around from nurse to nurse in the hospital while I was being treated for a minor head wound. You can’t fight what you can’t see but we can try and prevent the spread of germs. Molded Pulp Engineering is manufacturing single-use containers that are impervious to liquids, can be autoclaved and are extremely low in dusting. Some of the items are a wash basin, kidney-shaped dish and instrument clamshell.
How do you know a container in the hospital is clean?
The single use containers are also biodegradable. They are derived from renewable resources adding to the environmentally friendly reputation that they hold. According to an article on hospital hygiene, Why Hygiene Solutions Reduce the Spread of Infectious Diseases , how do we all know how clean a bowl or basin is when we get it in our hospital room or in a treatment room? We don’t know for sure but the chances are, if we use a molded pulp, single cycle container, we would all have a rest easy attitude knowing the container hadn’t been used before.
