This hospital bedside cabinet was specifically designed to ensure that the spread of germs in hospital rooms is minimized.
Unsurprisingly, cross-contamination in hospitals can be quite common despite staff efforts to keep rooms as clean and sterile as possible. The 'Bristol Maid' hospital bedside cabinet was designed to prevent the risk of cross-contamination and the spread of germs. The cabinet is rotational and has "smooth surfaces with "no joints, junctions or sharp corners to harbor germs," ensuring that the surfaces are as easy to clean as possible.
The lack of bacteria breeding grounds in these cabinets ensures that vulnerable patients are not put at risk by the spread of germs, while also reducing the amount of work that hospital staff will have to do.
