We know that infection prevention is a top priority for dentistry experts, that is why Kerr Dental provides an all-inclusive line of hand hygiene soaps that are safe and sensitive enough for continuous usage on skin while consistently tough enough to eradicate germs. Kerr Dental’s VioNex line also includes several products that ensure the maintenance of dental hand hygiene even when soap and water are not readily available. VioNex No Rinse gel provides the perfect balance of disinfectant, cleanser and skin conditioner.
Hand hygiene—proper handwashing, hand antisepsis, or surgical hand antisepsis—is one of the most critical methods in preventing the spread of infections. Because your hands can easily come into contact with germs, maintaining proper dental hand hygiene is a strong first line of defense in protecting yourself and your patients from germs. Accordingly, keeping hands clean can play a key role in avoiding sicknesses and diseases that can be spread in healthcare settings. Despite being a simple act, it is an extremely significant and effective means in helping to ensure patient and clinician safety within the dental operatory. Along with surface disinfection, hand hygiene constitutes a vital part of both the room preparation and operatory cleanup processes within the 8 Points™ of Dental Patient Care.
Hand hygiene products should be used at specific times during a dental patient visit. The CDC states that hand hygiene should be practiced "before patient contact; after contact with blood, body fluids or contaminated surfaces (even if gloves are worn); before invasive procedures; and after removing gloves." Proper observance of hand hygiene practices at these key points can help disrupt the transmission of microorganisms to patients. Furthermore, as stated in the CDC's Guidelines for Infection Control in Dental Health-Care Settings, "noncompliance with hand hygiene practices is associated with health-care associated infections and the spread of multi-resistant organisms." In addition to helping protect staff members, acting in accordance with hand hygiene guidelines is highly essential to reducing the threat of cross-contamination between patients.
As part of our commitment to helping provide clinicians with products uniquely designed to maximize protection against dangerous organisms and pathogens, only Kerr TotalCare offers a variety of dental hand hygiene products from Metrex™, a brand used and trusted by thousands of hospital facilities every day. Some of the leading dental hand hygiene products from Kerr TotalCare include antimicrobial liquid soaps, antimicrobial foaming soaps, hand sanitizers, and antiseptic towelettes. While each of these hand hygiene products offers different features and benefits, they are all fundamental in helping to provide patient protection by reducing the transmission of germs.
