Hi Sue,

Ive looked at all 3 documents. Sorry my question isn’t probably precise.

I need to find out if there are any guidelines on choosing plain hand soaps that are to be used in healthcare facilities in clinical environments such as on wards.

Or can any plain soap be used for hand hygiene in the clinical environment?

Lou

Hi Louisa,
You will find information about hand hygiene products on the HHA website,
and in the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of
Infections in Health Care (NHMRC 2010), You will also find additional
information in the NSW Health Hand Hygiene Policy 2010 (PD 2010_058).

Regards,
Sue

hand soaps for healthcare areas [SECNo Protective Marking]

Hi all,

I am currently desperate for some information regarding hand soaps being
used in the clinical setting. Are there any guidelines that stipulate what
soaps are allowed to be used by Healthcare Workers for instance it must be
a hospital grade soap or TGA registered/approved soap for clinical use.

Thanks in advance
