Polyethylene products or plastics are widely used in healthcare settings for various reasons and purposes. The versatility of polyethylene products makes it possible to adapt to the dynamic nature of the industry. Plastic medical bags, infectious waste bags, equipment covers to name a few are some plastic applications in the medical work environment. The following are reasons why the healthcare industry prefers to use polyethylene products in many of its preventative measures inside a medical facility.

1. Sterility

Medical supplies are usually one-time use. This is one way to prevent the spread of any disease from one patient to another and at the same time eliminates the need to sterilize and re-use a medical supply.

Some plastic medical supplies are also made with anti-microbial surfaces which can repel pathogens.

2. Increase Safety

Plastics are durable making them the best material to use for many medical safety supplies -- equipment covers, medical packaging, and medical waste disposable bags to name a few. And since they don't break, they make storage and transportation of any medical specimen convenient. In addition, plastic products can excellently protect the integrity of other objects with their specialized coatings. Furthermore, plastics create a non-permeable biohazard bags to safely contain infectious medical wastes.

3. Improve Comfort

Some metallic medical devices that are typically heavy can be replaced with lightweight and durable plastics. Also, hypoallergenic plastic medical devices provide a safe alternative to patients with hypersensitivity issues to certain metals. This allows more enhanced comfort and better treatment option.

4. Unconventional Uses

Plastic allows the medical industry to develop and innovate new supplies that can ease the execution of preventative measures against contamination and the spread of microorganisms. Also, plastics can be molded to create products that can be used in critical surgical procedures.

5. Economical

Plastic medical supplies can be mass-produced at a minimal expense. In addition, unlike metallic medical products that are susceptible to corrosion, plastics are not prone to wear and tear. This not only lowers the initial expenditures in producing medical supplies but also eliminates maintenance charges for worn out metal devices.
