Serres Nemo at Klinikum Gütersloh – Christine Aulbur
Klinikum Gütersloh started using Serres Nemo nearly one year ago. Since then, the innovative waste disposal equipment has been in constant use, making the management of infectious hospital waste not only easier but also safer.
"Serres Nemo is very useful, because it is easy to use. One of its advantages is that we don’t come into direct contact with hazardous liquid waste anymore,” Christine Aulbur says.
She works as a cleaner at Klinikum Gütersloh and knows what she’s talking about, as Aulbur and her co-workers are responsible for cleaning the hospital’s operating rooms.
"Using Serres Nemo makes our work more hygienic, because we don’t need to wash and sterilize suction bags by hand anymore – we simply remove them, and the equipment takes care of the rest,” Aulbur adds.
Serres Nemo saves time
"Serres Nemo empties the bag in just 20 seconds,” Aulbur explains, showing us how the system works.
Aulbur places a used suction bag into Serres Nemo, closes the lid and presses the start button. The empty bag is then thrown away.
"After doing this once or twice, you know how to use the equipment. New co-workers learn it quickly,” Aulbur says.
“We’re very satisfied”
As the entire process takes less than a minute, Serres Nemo is a welcome time saver. With more time on their hands, hospital staff can focus where it matters most.
"We’re very satisfied with Serres Nemo – it would be great to have more of these in the future,” says Aulbur.
