The washer-disinfectors regulated by standard EN ISO 15883-3 [1] are also known
colloquially as BEDPAN WASHER-DISINFECTORS. The terms automatic bedpan
washers or faecal washers are also occasionally used. These washer-disinfectors
(WDs) are primarily designed and intended for disposal of faeces together with
reprocessing of the associated containers such as urine bottles, bedpans and toilet
commode buckets.
