Moffitt Cancer Center replaced CHG impregnated wipes with Hibiclens daily patient bathing in response to low patient compliance. Following implementation of the protocol, patients reported greater satisfaction and compliance rose to 84%. VRE acquisition rate showed a 39% reduction from baseline and the hospital realized a cost savings switching from CHG wipes to Hibiclens.
