‘Sharp rise’ in temporary handwash hires

The Teal Task Force service – which supports medical environments with ‘high quality’ hot water hand washing sinks, delivering units to site to meet demand as a result of unplanned or planned water supply interruptions – says that while the winter season has always generated high demand for the hire service, it has seen ‘a significant increase’ over the last three months

Teal Patents explained: “There is particular demand growth from locations where the mains water supply has had to be suspended for maintenance or refurbishment. In the past managing this has been challenging, but with the Teal service available at short notice, wards can continue functioning normally with a hygienic, safe, hot water alternative.” 

Teal recently supplied a maternity ward at the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Noel Doyle, Teal Task Force manager, said: “We were contacted by the hospital to cover a short early morning period when plumbing work was planned. The Infection Control team was adamant that it needed a sink for every bed in the ward.”
