Ecolab wants patients to be clean all over
Minneapolis Star Tribune, August 22, 2008
St. Paul, MN-based Ecolab has introduced a preoperative antiseptic bathing kit that lets patients sterilize their bodies before undergoing surgery. The kits, which contain a 4-ounce bottle of chlorhexidine gluconate skin disinfectant, two wrapped washcloths and cleaning instructions, are expected to help hospitals cut down on the alarming number of surgery-related infections. Hospitals are expected to sell the kits, which have been approved by the FDA, for less than $40.
