why is safeSorb superior to all other fluid solidifiers?
SafeSorb has been specially designed to be added to a suction canister PRIOR to starting a procedure.
SafeSorb can be poured into an empty suction canister five minutes or five days before you start the procedure. After you have pre-loaded the canister with SafeSorb, close the lid forever. When the procedure is completed the contents are solidified and the canister is ready for disposal. In addition to SafeSorb continuing to work effectively for extended periods, the fluid level indicated on the graduated lines of the canister will accurately represent the volume of fluid in the canister. All other medical waste fluid solidifiers have to be added to the canister after the procedure is completed, when the canister is full of hazardous, infectious liquid waste. If you use another solidifier, when the procedure is completed, someone must open either the pour spout or a suction tube port on the suction canister lid to introduce the solidifier. The bottle of solidifier is then attached to one of these ports and suction is turned on to draw the solidifier powder out of the bottle and into the suction canister. This process unnecessarily exposes personnel to aerosolized bloodborne pathogens, risks spilling the canister contents and takes additional time to solidify the canister.
Pre-loading SafeSorb into an empty suction canister is safer, takes less time to use and maintains the integrity of a closed suction system.
Note: If a facilities' protocol requires adding a fluid solidifier to the canister at the conclusion of the procedure, SafeSorb can be introduced into the canister in this manner as well.
