The importance of clinical hygiene
Some common medical hygiene practices include sterilisation, the use of protective clothing, correct dressing of injuries, safe containment and disposal of medical waste and regular disinfection and cleansing of hands and surfaces.
There have been several high profile cases that have illustrated the dangers of not maintaining appropriate standards of hygiene.
Earlier this year the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India, was beset by hygiene-related problems with Michael Scott, performance director of British Swimming, filing an official complaint and a disproportionately large number of swimmers falling ill.
Although hygiene standards in Britain are significantly higher than those in India, the number of athletes reporting ill health and the subsequent media coverage reinforced the importance of maintaining suitable levels of hygiene.
fitnessASSIST are fully aware of the importance of good hygiene and supply a range of high quality products suitable for use in medical environments and professions.
Our demagogically tested Hygiene Wipes are suitable for both professional and medical use. They do not contain any alcohol or lanolin and are slightly fragranced to leave skin feeling fresh and clean.
Supplied in a pack of 80 wipes, they are kind to the skin with an added softener helping to protect the patient’s skin.
The safe containment and disposal of sharps waste is extremely important. Our Sharps Bin for Clinical Waste Control is tamper proof, ensuring that sharps can be continuously disposed in a safe manner.
The 2.5 litre bin is the ideal size for managing sharps waste disposal on a weekly or monthly basis.
fitnessASSIST can also supply medical professionals with Pre Injection Swabs and Non-Latex Gloves.
Our pack of 100 swabs contains cutisoft wipes for cleaning the skin prior to injection. The Individually wrapped and single use non-woven swabs are saturated with 70% Isopropyl alcohol.
Non-latex, powder free gloves are supplied in boxes of 100 and are available in small, medium or large sizes.
