Hmmm.... Have you heard back from the rep yet?
Nope. He's never been known for prompt attention. :stone
I glanced at the website briefly & couldn't find any info on reactions. Even checked the MSDS on the site to see what the inactive ingredients are. No luck there, either.
I know, that's why i contacted the rep next. The website's kinda vague on this.
It's mostly your ortho docs using it? Any other services? We have been using the clear for quite some time for perm-cath insertions, but nothing else really & no complaints that we get to hear about.
Our vascular docs were using the green, clear, and orange for their access cases, and ironically, they have no reactions reported on any of those cases. The gernal docs are using CloraPrep though (all colors) and are getting the same issue that my ortho docs are.
The gyn docs didn't want to switch, so they're still using DuraPrep.
One of the things i went over with the ortho docs (boy that was a fun meeting, not) was about their pre-op orders for site prep. We have two that want the operative sites washed with BetaSept the morning of surgery, so i thought maybe the 'double cleaning' was making the skin extra sensitive. But the same kind of skin reaction are happening with the pts. that aren't getting a pre-op scrub.
I've been sick with upper respiratory issues the past 2 days, so I haven't been able to talk with anyone at work about this. Hopefully, this fever breaks & the non-stop coughing stop so I can stop using this stupid nebulizer Q4 & get back to work. I'm BORED!!!!!
Ew, sounds like the same stuff everyone i work with is passing around. Take care of yourself.:smilecoffeecup:
