Virginia Hospitals Reduce Infections 41%
Date:6/23/2011

imate of $1.2 million for the 59 HAIs prevented. The cost to implement both products is less than $15,000 for three months.

"Our Clostridium difficile (C. diff) rates dropped significantly," says Linda Sokos, MT, CIC, Danville Regional Medical Center. "Needless to say, the Infection Control Committee recommended that the [Germ Pro] products be adopted. Nursing leadership concurred and we are in the process of bringing them in-house in all of our patient care areas."

Adds Rebecca Bartles, MPH, CIC, corporate manager, infection prevention department, Johnson City Medical Center, a member of Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA), "During the trial, we observed a 32.4 percent reduction in Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus (VRE), C. diff and multi-drug-resistant gram negative transmission rates. Although healthcare-acquired infections are often caused by multiple factors, this significant reduction indicates that a correlation may exist between these products and reduced environmental contamination. Additionally, we have observed a sustained decrease in infections at JCMC since the products were implemented in all areas. Based on these favorable results, MSHA facilities have implemented Germ Pro products system-wide."

"The most unique aspect of the Germ Pro Hand Sanitizing Lotion is its ability to 'persistently' kill pathogens in between hand washings preventing staff from picking up and transmitting germs to the patient," says David Jenkins, vice president, VHHA Services. "As an added benefit, the hypoallergenic lotion creates a protective hydrophobic polymeric layer over the skin that helps heal hands from the harsh effects of alcohol rubs and repeated hand washings. The need for the use of hand lotion to improve skin integrity as part of a comprehensive hand hygiene program has been well documented. As the lotion also helps reduce infections, multiple goals are achieved."
