Active Comparator: Alcohol hand sanitizer foam
Alcohol foam hand sanitizer applied with 1 pump into hands, spread over hands up to the wrist and rubbed until dry. Foam will be applied twice approximately 15-30 minutes apart on one day.
Drug: Alcohol hand sanitizer foam
Alcohol foam hand sanitizer applied with 1 pump into hands, spread over hands up to the wrist and rubbed until dry. Foam will be applied twice approximately 15-30 minutes apart on one day
Other Name: Purell Instant Sanitizer Foam
Active Comparator: hand antiseptic with CHG and alcohol
Hand antiseptic is applied by dispensing 1 pump into hands, spreading over the hands up to the wrist, and rubbing until dry. Hand antiseptic will be used twice approximately 15-30 minutes apart on one day.
Drug: hand antiseptic with CHG and alcohol
HCWs will be randomized to use one product on one day and the other product on another day at least 3 days apart. Each product will be applied using 1 pump from its dispenser and rubbed over the hands until dry. Gloves will be worn while the HCW is in the patient room. Upon exit from the room, HCW will washoout with that same product. One imprint will be made of the non-dominant hand onto media containing neutralizers. That hand will be gloved with a white cotton glove. The HCW will work in the common areas with timing recorded. Upon leaving the common area, the dominant ungloved hand will be imprinted onto a fresh media plate containing neutralizers.
- Bacterial Colony Forming Units Present on Hand Prints After Time Spent in Common Areas [ Time Frame: On each of 2 days, Hand print plates collected from one hand immediately after product use (T0) and from other hand after time spent in MICU common areas ]Hand print plates will be collected from HCWs immediately after use of hand hygiene product and after time spent in common areas. Each HCW will use both products at least 3 days apart. Hand print plates from each product for each HCW will be compared.
