'Hibiscrub' antiseptic hand wash, Macclesfield, England, 1996
'Hibiscrub' antiseptic handwash in plastic bottle, for nurses' hand disinfection and patient skin antisepsis, as used in nursing MRSA patients, ICI, Macclesfield, Cheshire, 1996.
One way of preventing the spread of hospital infections is by using an antiseptic hand wash. Hand washing is not just the responsibility of hospital staff but visitors too. This hand wash is also used as an antiseptic on patients’ skin in an attempt to limit MRSA infections. MRSA is resistant to an increasingly large number of antibiotics and can be difficult to treat once inside the patient’s body.
