Benefits of Stainless Steel Hospital Baskets
Hospitals use baskets for a variety of reasons and situations. They are typically used either on IV Poles or wall-mounted Track Systems, in multiple rooms throughout the hospital. The majority of the baskets purchased are powdered coated steel baskets, but the issue they face is the baskets chip very easily, and this can be a breeding ground for rust and bacteria to accumulate. The repurchase costs add up over time since these baskets will need to be thrown out and replaced quite often.
Secure Mount is moving away from these Powder Coated Baskets and has switched over to all Electro-polished Stainless Steel baskets. A reinforced band has been added to the top portion of the baskets to keep them intact and to eliminate bending. The life cycle of a powder coated basket once it has been scratched or chipped is limited.
Our Stainless Steel baskets will not chip and have an unlimited life cycle. Electro-polished Stainless maintains a higher level of sterility and cleanliness which reduces the risk of infections and bacteria. The initial investment is higher but without the repeated replacement that you will incur with the powder coated baskets, the savings is significant over time.
