Exclusive: Plastic spouted beakers 'infantilise' patients


I have often thought plastic beakers were undignified. China would be nice but do not bear up to commercial dishwashers. I work with dementia clients . Drinking vessels often get mixed up , dropped , thrown etc . The spout could be shortened to enhance proper swallowing, perhaps weighting the base to avoid tipping. But a ‘nice’ decorated outer casing may be a cheaper alternative, looking like a normal cup With a lid ?
