Wipes in the Dock – Guilty or not guilty?

The BBC website has reported on a paper presented in the USA by scientists from the Welsh School of Pharmacy that looks at the possibility of the mis-use of wipes being a possible vector for MRSA. I suppose this is possible, but as usual, if items such as these are used correctly then the risks should be minimal. Staff who have had the apporopriate training and who are motivated to implement what they’ve been taught will reduce the risk of this occurring. Papers such as these are useful in demonstrating the risks to those who can become blase about good practice and it is good to see that the BBC sought comments from Tracey Cooper from the Infection Prevention Society.
