    Do you also offer CHG wipes? Yes – we allow either, per patient preference
    -What has the feedback been if you switched from wipes to Hibiclens from patients? From staff?
    -What challenges do you have with Hibiclens? Sometimes it is used diluted in a tub/basin of water, versus full strength on skin/washcloth.
    -What are some successes related to Hibiclens?
    -Do you only let kids shower with Hibiclens or do you have a process for using washcloths? See above, we don’t really have a process – we are just happy that they are bathing using Chlorhexidine

    Team,

    This topic has come up before, but I wanted to address some specific questions.

    If your facility uses Hibiclens:

    -Do you also offer CHG wipes?
    -What has the feedback been if you switched from wipes to Hibiclens from patients? From staff?
    -What challenges do you have with Hibiclens?
    -What are some successes related to Hibiclens?
    -Do you only let kids shower with Hibiclens or do you have a process for using washcloths?

    Any and all feedback on the product would be valuable as we consider it.

    Thanks!
