Smart body fluid management systems

In my opinion, the company Hygie provides exactly what my hospital needed: a safer method of removing liquids and organic solids. The envelope and bag system is a formidable technique that eliminates the potential dangers of splashing that accompany traditional handling. We bought the Hygie bedpans and commodes very much to our satisfaction - it was easy for nurses, attendants and practitioners to get started. Since we've been using Hygie envelopes, there's been less turnover and fewer complaints from staff. The commode is a safe product that rolls in all directions and has an excellent brake system ... very user-friendly! The training was excellent and flexible to reflect the fact that we are open 24 hours a day. The representative has always been compassionate and attentive. Nurses could tell her about the problems they had with other systems and their concerns were validated. Taking care of the toilet and the hygiene of the patients in a health center is accompanied by many problems. It's really nice to have a product that meets almost all our needs.

I was first introduced to Hygie products when my elderly mother was in a rehabilitation at Stella Maris and developed C. diff  I was impressed by their use of the products as a hygienic way of keeping the spread of this highly contagious disease.  It protects the patient, family members, and heath care professionals from transmitting it as well.  When mom was released from the Stella Maris we tried a competitor’s product, but it did not match up to the quality of Hygie bedpan covers.  I now care for my mother, along with nursing help and we could not live without them.

Several staff members indicated that they really liked using Hygie liners because they eliminate the risk of being splashed when getting rid of urine and stool. In some units, Hygie liners are used for all patients who need a bedpan, not just for patients for whom they are specifically indicated to prevent contamination. In addition, their use has reduced odors in the wings, where bedpans and commodes are frequently handled.

While I was a nurse, I would have enjoyed working with these products! I feel that it would have helped me a lot in my tasks and that I would have been even more effective! Continue to contribute in this way to the improvement of procedures in hospitals. For experiencing this reality, effective and safe products like these are welcome in our hospitals!

We have eliminated all pressure guns in residents' washrooms to install Hygie hygienic covers for all users of commodes, bedpans and urinals. For our part, hygienic liners have been the best alternative, both for reasons of infection prevention and budget. Employees are very appreciative of the envelopes because they no longer have to circulate and handle soiled basins, since residents may be contagious before the onset of symptoms. We therefore limit the handling of excreta in the resident's environment. here, the employees clearly told us that they would not want to have to walk to the macerator or the decontaminator with soiled bedpans and that they would simply eliminate the excreta in the toilet to avoid these displacements. Therefore, the other two alternatives were not feasible for the sake of infection prevention (and for other reasons). Each of the residents has their own bedpan, which is cleaned between each use (after removal of the envelope) with a disinfectant wipe.

Several staff members indicated that they really like the new Hygie bag because it prevents the risk of splashing themselves when dumping urine or feces. Some units have started using the Hygie bag on all patients requiring a bedpan, rather than just for specific indications, to prevent passing infections to other patients. In addition, it has reduced the odor in patient care areas associated with frequent handling of stool and bedpans.

With Hygie's hygienic bags, there is a significant reduction in the handling of stools, the cleaning of basins and the risk of C. difficile transmission.
