Medical Waste Cans Keep Your Facility Compliant & Hygienic
Every medical facility that performs regular examinations needs to outfit its exam rooms with medical waste cans that are sturdy enough to hold up to the daily wear and tear that comes with providing the best quality care. Make keeping your facility hygienic and OSHA-compliant easy by installing easy-access cans with foot pedals to minimize surface contact. Stainless steel construction ensures that your nurse practitioners and medical assistants save valuable time on cleanup at the end of the day, allowing them to simply wipe down the external, nonporous surface with antibacterial wipes.
Keep Waste Disposal Hands-Off With Foot Pedals
When your nurses spend all day hopping from one exam room to the next and prepping each exam room for the next patient, there's no time to manually open medical waste containers for each disposal. That requires gloving, hand washing and re-gloving without any contact in between. Instead, let your nurses save valuable time by using a handy foot pedal to access each container.
Non-Porous Stainless Steel Construction Makes Cleaning Simple
There's nothing more important to your medical staff than keeping their work environment and their patients' exam environment as pathogen-free as possible. Give your staff the tools they need to minimize the spread of pathogens with Medi-Can waste disposal containers that feature stainless steel construction. Stainless steel is nonporous and provides a hostile environment for bacteria and other pathogens. It's also easy to keep clean with a quick wipe-down between uses, keeping nasty bugs and illnesses where they belong: in the trash.
Dampered Lids Minimize Stressful Repetitive Noises
Hearing the crash of steel-on-steel all day every day is taxing on your staff's ears. Minimize their discomfort by choosing waste disposal cans that feature damper-controlled lids, such as those by Silent Defenders. These lids close securely and open with ease, all without making a sound, letting your staff and patients go about their business without disruptive clanging.
Protect Floors With Nylon Glides
Staff members need to move medical waste cans around frequently for cleaning purposes, which leads to irreparable gouges and scratches on your otherwise-pristine linoleum tile. Keep your exam room floors looking shiny and new by choosing cans outfitted with nylon glides on their stainless steel legs that eliminate the problem of scratches and skid marks.
Install Cans With Restraint-Equipped Lids to Minimize External Contact
All the cross-contamination protection in the world is for naught if the lid of your medical waste can hits the wall every time your nurses place waste inside. Brands such as Silent Defenders feature a restraint mechanism that opens the lid in a fluid motion without letting it make contact with nearby surfaces such as the wall. This minimizes the potential for cross-contamination and makes your staffs' lives much easier.
