A new sink was developed by an manufacturer in Midland, Ontario, specifically for hospitals, according to an article on the Barrie CTV News website.
It has no faucet, knobs or levers and is designed to reduce splashing. Behind the cover it has a built in ozonator.
Infusing the water with ozone kills bacteria on the patients' hands, the sinks surface and in the drain, according to Franke Kindred.
Collingwood General and Marine Hospital is one the first in Canada to install the new sinks as part of its emergency room modernization.
