Alsoft Rapid Acting Hand Disinfectants (active even on H1N1, H5N1)
Alcohol-based hand sanitizers containing emollients (Allantoin & Disobutyl Adipate) may cause less skin irritation and dryness than commonly used detergents and are tolerated better by health-care personnel than washing hands with non-antimicrobial soaps or antimicrobial soaps.
Alcohol Content in the sanitizer will determine it's use. 70% alcohol is best for bacteria, whereas a higher concentration (80-99%) is needed for Anti-viral properties
In contrast to sinks used for hand washing, dispensers for alcohol-based hand sanitizers do not require plumbing and can be made available, at many locations.
Pocket carriage of alcohol-based hand sanitizers, together with availability of bedside dispensers has been associated with significant improvement in adherence of personnel to hand hygiene
The time required for nurses to leave a patient’s bedside, go to a sink, and wash and dry their hands before attending the next patient is a deterrent to frequent hand antisepsis. One study found that it would require about one-fourth as much time to use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer placed at each patient’s bedside protocols.
Below is a rather weird hand hygiene dance by Saraya, but towards the end, it demonstrates the importance of alcohol hand rubs as opposed to traditional hand washing.
