Bed Washing System
After poor hand hygiene, beds and mattresses are one of the highest transmitters of bacteria in hospitals. Most hospital beds in the UK are currently cleaned by hand, which only reduces micro-organisms by 35%. The Innova Bed Washing System is an automated bed washing system proven to reduce bacteria by up to 99%! This significantly reduces the risk of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs).
UK hospitals could save thousands of lives and millions of pounds by automating their bed washing processes with the Bed Washing System. Unlike other automated bed washing tunnels, it doesn’t use chemicals. Instead, the innovative system, brought to you in partnership with Weber Hospital Systems, uses precision robots and high-temperature steam to provide a consistent and controlled quality of thermal disinfection. It is the only system on the market that can clean and disinfect IPX4 (non-washable) beds. Beds can be washed, dried, and ready for patient use in 6 minutes – no manual cleaning required.
Innova, in partnership with Weber Hospital Systems, have brought the Bed Washing System to the UK. Watch the video above to see how the system works at Herlev Hospital
