Are eye wash stations required for areas where Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Germicidal Sprays are utilized?Show Answer
Eye wash stations are not required for areas where Germicidal Disposable Wipes and Germicidal Sprays are utilized as intended for surface disinfection. Although these products are classified as eye irritants, there is no OSHA or ANSI regulation that requires an eye wash station for eye irritants and therefore one not needed for these products. Handling of any chemical product, whether category 1, 2, 3, or 4, include using PPE when required, engineering controls if appropriate, and safe work practice controls to minimize any risk of exposure
Why is the Prevantics® Device Swab solution beneficial?Show Answer
By using an antiseptic to disinfect the needleless access site, you are decreasing the risk of the patient acquiring a bloodstream infection (BSI) which can be fatal to the patient. According to the CDC, “Disinfection of the devices with Chlorhexidine /alcohol solution appears to be most effective in reducing colonization”.
If I use the Prevantics® Device Swab product, will I still need to use an alcohol impregnated cap?Show Answer
Not necessarily. If clinicians follow all existing infection prevention and control measures, such as hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, use of chlorhexidine-based skin antisepsis, etc. then the use of an alcohol impregnated cap may not be clinically indicated. This would be evaluated by ongoing surveillance of HAI rates.
