:- Surgical scrub key features
Water control : - Water controls on scrub sinks may be operated by hand or with a hands-free feature like a knee operated panel, foot pump, or infrared sensor.
Digital timer :- A digital timer is used to ensure that the proper amount of time is spent on hand hygiene before entering the operating room. Timers count down from a pre-determined start to prevent scrubbing in for less than the desired length of time.
Soap dispenser:- Proper dose of surgical scrub chemistry is also very important when selecting a scrub sink. Soap is typically dispensed by a hand pump, foot pump, knee operation, or infrared methods.
Faucet :- The faucet is an important feature of a scrub sink, as it delivers the water for the hand scrubbing process. Faucets should offer non-aerated, consistent water flow with either shower-head or laminar properties. Optional eye wash stations are typically available; it is important to follow all ANSI guidelines when planning eye wash stations in a healthcare facility.
Station/Bay :- Scrub sinks may be constructed with one, two, or three stations at which multiple members of the OR staff can wash their hands at the same time.
