Reduce the risk of cross-infection
Vernagel solidiﬁes bodily ﬂuids, this prevents any spillages particularly when the bedpan or bottle is taken from the patient. Cross infection can occur when bodily ﬂuids spill onto beds, ﬂoors or onto other patients or equally when bedpans and urinals are taken to the sluice room.
Protecting patient dignity
Soaking wet beds are not nice to wake up to and the cleaning required can also be very time consuming and inconvenient for the nurse. Vernagel solidiﬁes liquids eliminating spillages and splash backs thus increasing patient conﬁdence and protecting the dignity of your patient through the night.
Eases nurse workload and saves laundry costs
Trials carried out in four hospitals conﬁrmed that by preventing spills Vernagel could save an average ward 135 days a year in nurse time and £2,600 a year on laundry costs.
