    We do not use it for patients that have any sign of skin irritation but especially Grade 3 or 4.  No evidence to support.

    Hello all,

    Does your hospital have a policy on the use of CHG wipes on kids experiencing skin GvH (yes/no, staging, etc.)? And if you could share policy or evidence either way, that would be wonderful as we are evaluating ours versus one for an entire academic health center.
