Caregivers prefer Panaway to washing bedpans

Panaway, and the environmentally friendly disposable bedpans, bottles, commode pots and pans, are the pleasant, sterile alternative to rewashing plastic and stainless steel items used for toileting immobile or incontinent residents. Rapid waste disposal reduces odours, lowers infection risks, frees up time for caregivers and is part of the gold standard for patient care.

Service and Support

Supplies, service and support

A site can be changed to use Panaway, at a pace that suits you – from a zero-risk trial or backup to existing washers, through to a full upgrade supported by the Haigh team.

A wide range of pulp products are readily and competitively available, either direct from the manufacturer or through your existing mainstream healthcare product suppliers.

Servicing and training for facilities management teams, spare parts, and maintenance schedules for macerators are widely available – and less demanding than for washers.

“We have been bowled over by the overwhelmingly positive feedback from Panaway M1 trials. This is the tool site operators wished they always had when it comes to patient waste and the associated infection prevention procedures.”
Jacob Shepherd, Managing Director at Haigh

“The Panaway trial scheme was exactly what we needed to test the transition to disposable pulp items. I’m thrilled – it’s facilitated our future!”
Manager, Private Care Home

“We’ve already seen some neat ways Panaway M1 has been used that were completely new to us and we are genuinely excited to see how this further develops over time.”

“This is a game changer. Machine breakdowns and maintenance can be better managed and staff can focus on what they do best – caring for our patients.”
Senior Link Nurse, NHS Hospital

“Even sites that do not currently use disposable pulp can see benefits without having to switch from washing systems all in one go.
Jacob Shepherd, Managing Director at Haigh

“I would recommend the Panaway to anyone supporting an immobile loved one at home. I’m not sure what we would have done without it!”
