What is a Bidet:
The bidet is designed to promote personal hygiene and is used after defecation and also washing of feet, with or without filling it up with water. Some options have a vertical jet intended to give easy access for washing and rinsing the perineum and anal area.
The bidet was originally located in the bedroom, near the chamber-pot and the marital bed, but in modern times is located near the toilet bowl in the bathroom.
Where it is commonly found:
It is a plumbing fixture that is installed as a separate unit in the bathroom besides toilet, shower and sink, which users have to straddle. Some bidets resemble a large hand basin, with taps and a stopper so they can be filled up; other designs have a nozzles that squirt a jet of water to aid in cleansing.
Usage and Health:
Personal hygiene is improved and maintained more accurately and easily with the use of both toilet paper and a bidet as compared to the use of toilet paper alone.
Because of the large surface of the basin, after-use and routine disinfection of a stand-alone bidet requires thoroughness, or microbial contamination from one user to the next could take place. Hospitals must consider the use of bidet properly and consider the clinical background of patients to prevent cross-infection. Warm-water bidets may harbor dangerous microbes if not properly disinfected.
