Kick bucket is a common term used for a medical receptacle. Kick buckets are usually made of stainless steel, and are mounted on wheels. The bucket and the wheel framework is also available in the market separately. It is called a kick bucket due to the concept that the bucket is generally moved around the operating room using the foot. This is possible because the bucket is mounted on wheels. The kick bucket is used during a surgical procedure for the disposal of a number of pliable and disposable articles, such as sponges that are used to absorb blood or fluids during the procedure. At the end of the procedure, a nurse counts the number of sponges in the bucket to ensure that all the sponges are accounted for.
These kick buckets are available in different sizes, such as 12 qt US, 13 qt US, and 8.5 qt US. Kick buckets can be broadly classified by type, such as kick buckets with lids and kick buckets without lids. The wheel framework of the kick bucket is also available separately. The number of wheels attached to the framework varies based on the design of the bucket. It may have 3, 4 or 5 wheels.
