    -Do you also offer CHG wipes? Yes
    -What has the feedback been if you switched from wipes to Hibiclens from patients? From staff? Patients/staff prefer the Hibilcens (we only use the wipes as a last resort if bath is refused)
    -What challenges do you have with Hibiclens? None
    -What are some successes related to Hibiclens? Patients/parents/staff like Hibi so much better as it does not leave the sticky film on the skin
    -Do you only let kids shower with Hibiclens or do you have a process for using washcloths? We use the wash cloths if there needs to be a bed bath

    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!
