Staphylococcus aureus accounts for more health care associated infections (HAI) than any other pathogen.1 Decolonization has been used to reduce transmission and may help prevent HAI in S. aureus carriers.
We offer a decolonization assessment program to analyze current practices at your facility to help you implement evidence-based protocols to improve clinical outcomes.
Following clinically proven therapies and best practices for decolonization can help optimize surgical outcomes. 3M can support your efforts with solutions, products and best practices.
