As hospitals, nursing homes and clinics struggle with nosocomial risks and costs of reprocessing wash bowls and basins; Curas once again moves the market forward by a brand new concept, as explained by Janice Lim, General Manager:

“In too many hospitals the choice between a clean & safe, or potentially dirty and risky patient bed bath procedure is – in reality – a matter of selecting between wet wipes or the use of water. We have decided to change this narrative and are now providing our brand new REF 08027 3L Bowl w/Hygiene Control Bag. The product is made up by an inexpensive core 3L bowl [produced by recycled paper material] and an outside PE bag made of virgin grade, very thin but strong and medically clean surface protection. The Hygiene Control Bag serves a dual purpose; first of all it provides a clean & disposable surface for the water & wipes/wash-gloves, but – and this is the innovative bit – it also provides the nurse the opportunity to use the cover bag as a closed-off and sealed waste bag, in which he/she can maintain and remove the contaminated wash / waste water, including the used wipes etc. We are certain this product will prove very popular and useful in both normal as well as high-risk patient situations.”

The 3L bowl product can also be applied in alternative settings e.g. in commode situations or in cases where patients require a large capacity vomit bowl or similarly.

The product is available by Curas Logistics in its central hub in Belgium.
