Disposal unit enables infection prevention at POC

The new Vernacare Compact disposal unit enables infection prevention at the point of care.

It is a new addition to Vernacare’s range of disposal units, which include the Vortex+ and Vortex models.

This unique maceration system keeps drains flowing by ensuring that miniscule waste particles are only flushed to drain once maximum water dispersion has been achieved.

It is the smallest disposal unit on the market and can be located closer to patients, if needed, such as in patient bathrooms, isolation rooms, specialist areas like radiology, x-ray, chemotherapy and theatre recovery, or long term care settings. The Compact is operated entirely hands-free via an ultrasonic foot sensor and starts automatically when the lid closes, ensuring swift and hygienic disposal of each Vernacare single-use container immediately after patient use.
