Why is Stainless Steel is So Important?
We get told all the time "an IV Pole is just an IV Pole". Well, we could not disagree more. There are a lot of inexpensive, chrome plated IV poles, carts and hampers all throughout healthcare.
The problem with chrome is that it is only chrome plated on one side – the side that we see. The inside is raw, open steel. When liquids are introduced, this will in time begin to rust and can become a breeding ground for bacteria.
Stainless Steel is solid stainless throughout and will not rust. Creating a easy to clean, non rusting environment...which is an important step to infection prevention in any healthcare facility.
