Post-acute facilities face numerous challenges, including the prevention of healthcare-acquired infections (HAIs). As facilities receive more medically complex patients from acute settings, there is a greater potential for pathogen transmission. Additionally, hospitals facing penalties for readmissions are reluctant to continue making referrals to facilities that have high rates of serious infections.
Hibiclens – proven effective
For more than 40 years, hospitals and healthcare systems have relied on Hibiclens antiseptic skin cleanser. Routine washing with Hibiclens delivers proven protection against germs on the skin that cause healthcare-associated infections.1
Mölnlycke helps to make it easy for post-acute care providers – including home health, skilled nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, post-acute care facilities and hospice – to implement an infection control plan. The gentle Hibiclens cleanser with 4% CHG is available in several sizes and formulations and is readily available through retail outlets so it can be used by patients across the continuum of care.
