Whole body washing provides a safe and efficient way of disinfecting a patient's body

Whole body wash

The skin is a possible source of contamination1

A patient's skin is a major source of pathogens that cause surgical-site infections. Preoperative antiseptic skin preparation may decrease the incidence of postoperative infections2. There is a significant relationship between positive skin culture and wound infection rates, suggesting that the skin is a possible source of contamination3. The whole body washing procedure or general skin cleansing procedure with HiBi® antiseptics provides a safe and efficient way of disinfecting the patient's body.
