Hibiclens

A 4% chlorhexidine gluconate solution for patient skin antisepsis.

Clinicians around the world are under constant pressure to reduce hospital-acquired infections (HAI). Infection rates are falling, yet one in 25 hospital patients still acquires a HAI. Daily patient bathing can help you protect more of your patients.

This antiseptic skin cleanser provides effective defense against the spread of infections in your facilities. The active ingredient, chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG), begins to kill germs on contact. It bonds with the skin and keeps on killing microorganisms, even after washing.

  • reduced C. difficile infections by 70%  
  • 61% lower incidence of primary bloodstream infections  
  • decreased methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) by 32%  
  • reduced vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) by 50%
