Take control of your pre surgical infection prevention protocol. Apply 3M™ Skin and Nasal Antiseptic one hour before surgery to reduce bacteria in the nares.
Control nasal decolonization with a trusted solution. 3M Skin and Nasal Antiseptic allows facilities to oversee nasal decolonization in their facility, without the complexity of at home applications before and after surgery. Frequently, providers address nasal bacteria with a five day regimen of an antibiotic called mupirocin. However, poor patient compliance and antibiotic resistance can make this treatment less effective. To help protect patients, 3M Skin and Nasal Antiseptic is an alternative antiseptic solution to the current antibiotic approach for nasal decolonization. This simple, one time application reduces nasal bacteria, including S. aureus, by99.5% in just one hour and maintains this reduction for at least 12 hours. As part of a comprehensive preoperative protocol, 3M Skin and Nasal Antiseptic is an important tool to help reduce SSIs while supporting antibiotic stewardship.
