Teal mobile handwash stations for medical facilities
Ensuring that all possible hygiene standards are being upheld
How an effective decontamination procedure was developed by the Hospital Infection Research Laboratory in Birmingham
The assessment of a decontamination procedure for the “MediWash”* handwashing unit.
*The prototype name of the unit being tested was the “Stop ‘n Wash”.
Assessment of a decontamination procedure for the “Hygenius”* handwashing unit.
*These procedures apply equally to the “Hygienius ProWash”.
Legionella risk designed out
All Teal mobile handwash stations operate by using instant hot water heating, which prevents the formation of Legionella bacteria, which flourish in warm water in a tank or pipework.
When the touch free, infra red beam is broken, cold water is pumped to the heater tank, heated up to 40°C using a 2KW heater for 6 seconds and then dispensed, which eliminates any potential bacterial growth.
The basin is designed so that the dirty water exit area is situated at the lowest point of the basin, thus ensuring the dirty water is unable to cause contamination.
The waste water exit is positioned at the furthest possible point away from the tap head to further ensure no mixing of fresh and dirty water.
Fully compliant units
Teal has taken on board all available directives on basin design, and wherever possible enhanced them, ever since their production of medical units began in 2004. There are however no current British or European standards for mobile handwash stations.
Waste water pipe
Unlike fixed plumbing installations, Teal mobile handwash stations do not have a U bend which can contain dirty water. All the dirty water is discharged directly to the waste water tank, thus ensuring that no dirty water cross contamination can occur.
