In many hospitals, the procurement of hospital furniture is often overlooked: cleanability. Due to the nature of a medical facility, the cleanability of furniture can be wrapped up in its safety, as the only safe furniture in a medical facility is impeccable cleaning and disinfection. Of course, the best way to keep your furniture perfectly clean is to buy furniture that is easy to clean.
The medical seat should be available to clean the seat and the space behind the seat back whenever and wherever possible – as convenient as possible. This not only reduces the number of places where bacteria can grow and multiply, but also makes it easier for staff to clean, ensuring that upholstery is completely cleaned and no space is left out. Large clean Spaces will prevent potentially harmful or bacteria-filled objects from depositing between the seat and back of a chair. Remember, your cleaning staff should not reach into areas where they cannot see where they may be touching – this is a health and safety issue for both patients and staff.
In addition to the seats, make sure that all boxes in the hospital are made of materials that are easy to clean. Wood and veneer furniture are porous and not suitable for healthcare environments. Instead, choose laminate for your reception desk, tables, and cabinets, which exudes a wood look but is cleaner. Keep in mind that all facilities in a healthcare facility need to be cleaned, not just what you can see on the surface. Even the interior of cabinets and drawers must be able to be completely cleaned to minimize the spread of harmful bacteria in your facilities. Consider drawer liners that can be easily removed if accidental leaks occur. Choose the right hospital furniture and reject the very effective prevention of disease
