To the Editor,
Always at the forefront of emerging topics, Healthcare Purchasing News thoroughly covers important issues for your readers and it is our pleasure to work with your staff to contribute to these articles.
In reviewing the April 2004 article entitled "Surgical Site Infection: The Operation Was a Success, But the Patient Died" by Susan Cantrell, we noticed an error when referencing our product Hibistat. Specifically on page 24 in the issue, it states: "There are still a lot of people who scrub, but the trend is moving toward a hand scrub once with a detergent-based cleansing solution, such as Regent's Hibiclens, followed by a hand rub with an alcohol-based cleanser, such as Hibistat, for each subsequent procedure." Hibistat currently does not have an approved FDA indication for use as a surgical scrub.
We apologize fur not correcting the above statement in our preview, but we wanted to bring this to your attention immediately and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Regent Medical is dedicated to setting the standard in protection to improve patient outcomes, address glove powder complications and hand-washing techniques and improve latex allergy awareness.
--Sincerely, Dan Manley, Vice President Marketing Regent Medical, SSL Americas, Inc.
