Why Implement Universal ICU Patient Decolonization?
Research shows universal nasal and skin decolonization can achieve 44% reduction in blood stream infections (BSI)2 and $171 cost savings per patient compared to targeted screen and isolation with CP.3
You can now achieve universal patient decolonization benefits including replacing screen and isolation while avoiding nasal use of antibiotic ointments with their bacterial resistance concerns. Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® provides safe decolonization that conforms with antibiotic stewardship.
