Wash basins are simple and versatile tubs generally used for sponge bathing of patients and infants. They are found in surgical supply kits and are sold on their own. While wash basins are mainly used for bathing purposes, they can be used for household cleaning, storage tubs, and are usually large enough to make a nice, relaxing foot soak.
Wash basins are usually made out of a lightweight plastic and are easy to carry from sink to using location. They are excellent for patient care in either a healthcare facility or for home care use. Plastic wash basins are easy to dispose of and should only be used on a single patient before disposal.
Wash basins are also available in stainless steel, but this type is best used in a surgical suite. Stainless steel wash basins are durable, reusable, and easy to sterilize.
Patient wash basins can handle comfortable water temperatures and usually hold about 8 quarts of water, for adequate supply while bathing. Most plastic versions are made latex-free for patient safety and versatility. Due to their economical price point and ease of use, plastic wash basins make an excellent patient hygiene product for use by any caregiver.
