Why do hospitals and nursing homes need a wheelchair washer?

We asked nursing home personnel and administrators why wheelchairs, toilet seat risers, garbage containers, walkers, etc. constantly remain dirty. You know what they said?
  • It just takes too long to thoroughly wash and sanitize so we superficially clean them.
  • Labor costs are high.
  • Bad weather delays washing especially in the winter.
  • Cleaning chemical splashes can cause staff injuries.
  • No one wants to do the job.
