Although this article focuses on cleaning hands prior to surgery the key message is important for our industry – highlights include; alcohol-based hand rubs (AHR) are considered superior to harsh medicated cleaners and hard scrub brushes for a variety of reasons. Everyone is encouraged to read this.
