The new CLARITY bedside locker has been specifically developed and designed to meet the stringent demands of modern day hospital environments. Howard Simpkin, MD of MS Storage explained the science behind Clarity’s ground-breaking effectiveness: “We wanted to create a patient bedside locker that was not only functional but also supported the efforts of the NHS to significantly reduce the spread of MRSA and other microbial contamination.”
Simpkin went on to tell us: “The reduced risk of infection lies in the locker’s unique antibacterial finish. BioCote is a silver oxide antibacterial coating which helps to combat the spread of diseases, such as MRSA.”
The CLARITY bedside locker comprises three individual drawer units and has rounded, rather than sharp edges, to facilitate easier cleaning and minimise staff and patient injury. The secure top drawer is designed to be used for the storage of patient medication. The middle drawer serves as a personal storage area, whilst the bottom drawer features adjustable storage provision for a washbowl at the rear of the compartment. The unit also features a highly visible raised towel rail at the rear of the unit, which serves as a visible prompt designed to encourage regular cleaning.
Designed to comply to BS 2881:1989 security Level 1, CLARITY offers a bedside unit that is both easy to decontaminate on a regular basis, whilst presenting an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The draw fronts and top are manufactured from a melamine faced fibre board, whist the drawer interior and sides are constructed from sheet steel. The entire surface area of the unit is sealed with BioCote, which helps combat the growth of micro-organisms within the ward environment.
