Patient Wipes

The ubiquitous patient wipe has been in use for many years and is often considered low-tech. But recent developments by Robinson Healthcare has seen the introduction of a new generation of wipes that offer users more choice and greatly improved levels of performance.

Improved Infection Control

 

Traditional wipes are generally made from 100% polypropylene. These wipes are fine for general cleaning tasks but are thin, have little or no absorbency and tend to smear fluids. Consequently, many more wipes are usually needed to complete the task. After use, the wipes have to be separated and placed in clinical waste bags. The latest development, Readiwipes Macerator, is exclusive to Robinson Healthcare and offers greatly improved levels of infection control thanks to its cleansing performance.

 

Reduced Costs & Environmentally Friendly

 

Macerator is significantly more absorbent than other wipes, meaning fewer wipes are needed to complete the task. This saves time, increases efficiency and reduces costs. Clinical trials indicate that major savings can be achieved over traditional, seemingly cheaper wipes, due to improved performance.

Macerator is made from a minimum 70% sustainable materials and is biodegradable reducing landfill and incineration. Macerator truly deserves the title of the environmentally friendly wipe!
