Our gloves reduce exposure to pathogens and cross-contamination. Patients’ personal cleaning procedure with water in a portable container still poses contamination problems and the institutions are nowadays turning to disposable solutions. A 2012 study in the American Journal of Infection Control already established that 2/3 of the washing containers were contaminated with infectious pathogens.
Whether it is to reduce urinary tract infections, cross-contamination or the washing and cleaning of the usual equipment, this hygienic system makes it possible to adopt a disposable solution, ready to use and ideal for nosocomial infections reduction.
Simply use and dispose in the trash
No spills, no contamination
No need to bring patient to the toilet, or bring a water container to the patient’s bed.
I just read the article in the Innovation section of Les Affaires. After literally "camping" at Charles-Lemoyne three times in 2007-2008 to watch over my father and my brother, I can testify that the risk situations described in the article are unfortunately the reality in hospitals. And when you choose to take care of a sick person at home, having access to such products can only help. Bravo and good luck for the future!

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.
