1. Portable Toilet Waste Bags

Brief Relief’s environmentally friendly products allows for liquid waste using our disposable waste bags. The Brief Relief Disposable Urinal Bag is our most popular product and instantly transforms urine into a deodorized gel. The special blend of polymers and enzymes allow human waste to be disposed of in normal trash cans. 

The Disposa-John Portable Restroom will take care of any solid or liquid waste.  This bag is a one-time use sanitary waste bag containment system that allows men and women to easily and hygienically answer nature’s call. When public bathrooms cannot be sanitized in between each use, these environmentally safe products allow all medical professionals the ability to go without worry of spreading germs. An antimicrobial wipe and toilet paper for extra sanitation is included for easy cleanup. These disposable waste bags for portable toilets can be combined with commode systems and privacy shelters to provide peace of mind.

2. Face Shields

The best way to prevent infection is to have the most vulnerable entry points protected. Face shields, similar to Tru-Form Plastics thermoforming manufacturing technology, is a great solution because they cover a larger surface area protecting the eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as help keep medical professionals from touching their face.

3. Commode Systems

Commode systems are practical replacements for traditional toilets because they allow for accessories that add typical bathroom comfort. Between risers and a toilet seat, those using a commode can almost feel like they are using a real toilet. These systems help prevent the spread of unwanted smells.

4. Hand Sanitizer

Rather than utilizing disposable hand wipes, hand sanitizer effectively kills bacteria and viruses. Stations throughout hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes can prevent healthcare professionals from spreading illnesses. When paired with commode systems or other portable toilet options, hand sanitizer allows everyone peace of mind that their hands are clean.

5. Privacy Shelters

Men and women in the medical field do not need to be subjected to everyone watching their bathroom routine. Fortunately, Brief Relief privacy shelters allow individuals to have peace of mind while they use the restroom. With a lock, zipper, and thick material, these shelters provide complete privacy when used with any of Brief Relief’s portable toilets or waste bags.

6. Heat Relief Towels

Long shifts at rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, and other medical facilities can be labor intensive. Even when indoors, it is possible to heat the body to higher than normal temperatures. Heat relief towels ensure these professionals do not suffer from heat-related illnesses. Simply run them under water, and they are ready to use!

7. Fluid Tactical Electrolyte Mixes

Hydration is critical to remaining healthy in medical work environments. In addition to heat relief towels, fluid tactical electrolyte mixes replenish and replace vital electrolytes and key nutrients to hydrate individuals so they can continue to perform their essential duties.

8. Breaks for Mental Relief

Mental health is just as important as physical health. The strain of working in facilities that see pain, death, and despair daily can take a large mental toll. Medical professionals must walk away when it becomes too much in order to keep a sharp mind and remain healthy. When it feels like too much, ask for a break and clear the mind.

9. Proper Nutritious Meals

Medical professionals take on long, hard shifts. In order to keep going, proper nutrition is key. Whether visiting the cafeteria or bringing food from home, nutritious meals will keep medical professionals at hospitals healthy.

10. Blackout Eye Mask to Ensure Sleep

A profession in the medical field can mean overnight shifts on occasion. In order to achieve a healthy amount of sleep, utilize a blackout eye mask and blackout curtains. Eight hours of sleep are essential to perform the best at work.
