PDI upgrades Sani-Hands wipes

June 26, 2014

70% alcohol-based formulation and educational resources target healthcare staff, visitors and patients.

As part of its commitment to infection prevention, PDI has introduced Sani-Hands in a new 70% ethyl alcohol formulation, making it the only FDA-approved 70% alcohol-based hand sanitizing wipe availalbe in the U.S. The new formulation meets the stringent evidence-based guidelines from both the DCD and the World Health Organization for hand hygiene in the healthcare setting. Both organizations recommend the use of a high alcohol-based hand sanitizer with an alcohol concentration between 60-90% when hands are not visibily soiled.

The newly formulated wipes are availalbe in individual packets, canister packs and bulk packages for dispensing systems.

"Patient hand hygiene is extremely important and often overlooked as an opportunity for meaningful engagement in infection prevention for all hospitalized patients, particularly those who are bedbound," says John Dabney, associate product manager, PDI. "We at PDI believe that we must establish a dialogue to help patients understand provider's responsibility as well as their own. This can help positively impact both outcomes and the bottom line."

PDI has also launched comprehensive educational resources and product enhancements for its Sani-Hands instant hand sanitizing wipes, the No. 1 hand sanitizing wipe in healthcare. The innovations will provide consistent education for staff, patients and visitors.
