Home > Specialties > Hampers


Definition : Containers designed for temporary collection and storage of used disposable products and/or dirty laundry. These containers typically consist of a ventilated basket (e.g., made of wicker or plastic) with a cover; an internal disposable liner (e.g., a plastic bag) to keep the hamper clean and to facilitate storage and manipulation of the hamper contents is usually fixed to the inner surface of the hamper. Hampers are also available as a combination of a hamper stand (a metallic structure) and appropriate hamper bags held by the stand. Large hampers are typically used for temporary storage of soiled laundry until it is moved to a final destination for washing; smaller, portable, typically single-use units are used mainly in isolation procedures and in regular patient rooms for temporary storage of contaminated products (e.g., cloth, bandages), minimizing cross-contamination and odor until their disposal. Some hampers are designed specifically for use in magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] environments, i.e., MRI-compatible hampers, and are made from nonmagnetic materials so that they can be safely used in an MRI suite.
