Healthcare Purchasing News: IP Operations Worth Watching
Healthcare Purchasing News recently published an article entitled IP Operation Worth Watching which identified hospitals and health systems recognized for their “outstanding dedication, practices and successes in infection prevention.”
Excerpt from the article:
“Hunterdon selected PDI’s Profend Nasal Decolonization Kit as its nasal decolonization product for a number of reasons, including:
- efficacy profile, killing 99.7 percent of Staphylococcus aureus at 10 minutes and 99.9 percent up to 12 hours after a 60-second applicatio
- time savings for staff, due to the pre-saturated swabs and easy patient application
- patient experience, allowing nurses to help explain to patients the importance of nasal decolonization
Ultimately, Hunterdon was able to improve outcomes, improve patient satisfaction, and reduce cost as a result of its implementation of the kit for the prevention of surgical site infections.
