Restroom Infection Control: Chlorhexidine, the Final Frontier
Pioneering, award-winning work at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, UK has demonstrated the remarkable residual antimicrobial activity of chlorhexidine on surfaces, thereby maintaining their continuous cleanliness over time.
In this school-setting trial, we demonstrate significant improvements in continuous cleanliness of restroom door handles. We discuss the possible benefits of applying this simple, inexpensive technique beyond clinical and office environments.
