    We use Hibiclens and we use the wash cloth system that comes with Hibi

    1. Put warm tap water into the bathing cloth packet from Hibi
    2. Pump hibi directly on skin
    3. Use first 2 cloths to lather in the hibi
    4. Use remaining wash cloths to rinse off hibi

    APHON team,

    If your hospital uses Hibiclens, Dynahex, or some other sort of liquid CHG bathing product, if you are bathing patients outside of a bath/shower setting, onto what type of product is the CHG applied? Washcloth? Foam wipe (if so, what brand)? Other?

    Do you use single use basins for this process?

    Any additional info or considerations not listed?

    Thank you for your feedback.
