Re: [Histonet] Grossing Stations

From:"Anne van Binsbergen"

gross star is the flashy version of the gross senior.
we have a senior which extracts OUT of the building - not a recirculator -
runs 24/7 and contains any vapours
recently a JCIA inspector said he was impressed that we have no fumes at
elevating mechanism is great for accomodating the vertically challenged as
well as the taller members of staff. sink is a bit small. flushing spouts
and various other water supplies are conveniently placed for ease of use.
filters are easy to change
only one complainit - water supply inlet at the back of the unit has an
ultra sensitive pressure sensor and whenever plumbers work on the water
supply anywhere in the building, it alters the pressure and this inlet shuts
and we have a flood
the machine is very heavy and its hard to get behind it to fiddle with the
mechanism to adjust
so we deal with the floods from time to time
a sister hospital has a gross-star and they are very happy
good luck
