Does your Surgical Scrub Sink Provide Proper Sanitation

Does your Surgical Scrub Sink Provide Proper Sanitation?

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

In any hospital or surgery center proper sanitation is critical. Proper hygiene and hand washing is key to ensuring patient safety. When considering scrub sinks for you facility, there are a couple things to consider.

1. The size of the sink.
It’s important to consider the size of the space it will be utilized to ensure there is still plenty of room to navigate around it. 

2. If staff can wash without ever touching the sink. ­
Bacteria can live on many surfaces and cutting out the need to tough the sink directly after washing eliminates additional contamination.

3. The material from which it’s made. 
Certain materials, such as stainless steel, offer better protection against harboring bacteria.

Future Health Concepts’ (FHC) surgical scrub sinks come in a variety of sizes while maintaining a deep sloping basin to allow for proper scrubbing. They are customizable to your needs for hands free washing with either knee operation, infrared sensor, or deluxe with a manual bypass for dual controls. We also offer chair carries and shelves for your scrub sink. 

Stainless Steel Scrub Sinks

Stainless steel doesn’t form cracks or tears and thus avoids storing dirt and bacteria. The construction of stainless steel not only provides sanitation, but also durability and resistance to corrosion and scratches, making it an efficient choice for medical facilities on limited budgets.

Although stainless steel is extremely sterile, it does require routine cleaning and a bright polished surface finish for maximum corrosion resistance. Stainless steel can be cleaned with just soap and water and does not require harsh chemicals.

Manufactured of the highest quality possible, Future Health Concepts delivers a full line of hands-free, fully functional surgical scrub sinks that are also budget-friendly. Whether you need a single, double or even triple scrub sink, FHC can provide it all. Call us today at 1-888-282-8644 or contact us online to learn more.
