We use the splashblocker. We have one in every inpatient room. EVS cleans it daily as part of cleaning the bathroom and if a nurse or NA uses supposed to clean it with bleach wipes. Overall better for the environment too ��
As an innovative barrier control device, the SPLASHBLOCKER™ acts as a seamless toilet lid when flushing the toilet after disposing hazardous waste.. It forms a shield when emptying or cleaning patient urinals, commodes, and bedpans. This barrier works as a barrier control that protects staff in conjunction with the use of personal protective equipment (PPE).

At my workplace, we use blue chux to cover the toilet seat before we flush and we leave it covered for upto 48 hours. I don’t think I have seen pads getting flushed down the toilet. Thank you
