sorry i posted this elsewhere but i think this is a better forum
i have a general question related to what i thought were standards of care
. the hospital i work for has recently adopted a new wonder soap called steiros
, and the powers that be have decided that we no longer have to place patients who have a history of mrsa or vre in contact isolation. as a matter of fact, since the advent of the special soap we no longer isolate patients who are currently infected
with mrsa or vre. we can even place them in semi-private rooms with post op patients. i have looked this soap up, checked out ther website, and even done a search of my university's library databases. i cannot find anything about a soap
that eliminates the need to isolate patients with mrsa and vre. has anyone else heard of this?
btw- the active ingredient is benzalkonium chloride, not chlorhexidine.
