|Title:||Low rates of cutaneous adverse reactions to alcohol-based hand hygiene solution during prolonged use in a large teaching hospital.||Austin Authors:||Graham, M;Nixon, R;Burrell, L J;Bolger, C;Johnson, Paul D R ;Grayson, M Lindsay||Affiliation:||Infectious Diseases Department, Austin Hospital, Austin Health, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||1-Oct-2005||Publication information:||Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy; 49(10): 4404-5||Abstract:||We assessed cutaneous adverse reactions (CARs) to alcohol-based hand rub (ABHR) after the introduction of a hand hygiene culture change program at our institution. CARs were infrequent among exposed health care workers (HCWs) (13/2,750; 0.47%; 1 CAR per 72 years of HCW exposure) and were not influenced by the duration or intensity of ABHR use but were associated with the presence of irritant contact dermatitis.||Gov't Doc #:||16189134||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/9998||DOI:||10.1128/AAC.49.10.4404-4405.2005||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/16189134||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Anti-Infective Agents, Local.adverse effects
