GP PRO, a division of Georgia-Pacific and provider of hygienic dispensing systems, and Mӧlnlycke, a medical products and solutions company, have announced a partnership to create a new hand hygiene standard in health care with the Hibiclens Antimicrobial Hand Soap System by GP PRO.
The Hibiclens Antimicrobial Hand Soap System by GP PRO combines the effectiveness of Hibiclens’ FDA-approved chlorhexidine gluconate (CHG) four percent solution with GP PRO’s automated touchless hand soap dispenser. The result is a system that helps improve hand hygiene compliance across the health care environment, according to a news release.
Paulina Rodriguez, BSN, RN, an infection preventionist in Abilene, Texas, shared, “My nurses regularly use Hibiclens for hand washing because they know how effective it is at providing a deep and lasting clean, and they love how gentle it is on their skin. Making it available in a touchless dispenser at hand washing stations throughout the health care setting, in my opinion, will encourage heightened use, improved overall hand hygiene and reduced transmission of microorganisms. This is the kind of solution that has the potential to dramatically and positively impact hand hygiene compliance and influence a reduction in healthcare-associated infections.”
“Our partnership with Mölnlycke is significant because it opens the door for health care professionals in both critical and non-critical areas of patient care to more easily comply with hand hygiene guidelines and, as a result, positively impact patient outcomes,” said Eric Jungslager, vice president, healthcare, with GP PRO. “We are proud to work side-by-side with such a highly respected health care leader to help elevate hand hygiene in health care.”
According to Jason Liles, global marketing manager, antiseptics, with Mölnlycke, “GP PRO is a valuable partner in our quest to provide innovative solutions that allow health care professionals to deliver better patient care. With the GP PRO touchless dispenser, care providers have the opportunity to reap the benefits of Hibiclens throughout the continuum of care.”
The Hibiclens Antimicrobial Hand Soap System by GP PRO is scheduled for availability starting Q4 2021. To learn more, visit https://www.gppro.com/gp/industry/healthcare.
