Skin degerming practices: Chaos and confusion

Thomas C. King, Jack M. Zimmerman

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This is a survey of skin degerming practices as reported in 195 responses from 240 selected hospitals in the United States and Canada. The wide variety of methods in use is evidence of the paucity of satisfactory comparative laboratory studies from which more rational decisions might be made and more uniform practice established.
