Klinikum Gütersloh has been using Serres Nemo since October 2017. The fluid hospital waste disposal equipment has brought cost savings and smoothed the daily routines of the hospital staff.
Heiko Sahm, Waste Manager at Klinikum Gütersloh, was looking for a more cost-effective way of disposing of secretions and fluids that are removed during medical procedures. He compared different options and found out about Serres Nemo.
– The disposal of infectious secretions didn’t function optimally, and it was also quite expensive. We made some calculations and decided to buy the equipment, Sahm explains.
Serres Nemo was delivered and installed in October 2017. The whole process was straight-forward, and the equipment has been in daily use ever since.
– We can now ensure a high level of worker protection, because our employees don’t need to handle infectious waste anymore.
The disposal of fluids and secretions is possible in the surgical unit, which saves costs.
– Our hazardous waste management costs have reduced by 80 %, and hospital waste management costs by 25 %. We calculated that the equipment would pay itself off in less than a year, compared to the hazardous waste management costs we previously had, Sahm explains.
”We have made cost savings, our procedures are now more hygienic and the staff is very satisfied with Serres Nemo.”
Sahm is very pleased with the overall experience.
– We have made cost savings, our procedures are now more hygienic and the staff is very satisfied with Serres Nemo. I can definitely recommend it, he concludes.
