Clipper Blades, Prep Trays Minimize Surgical Site Infections

Cardinal Health recently introduced its wet clipper prep tray and SensiClip blade to help clinicians better comply with guidelines and standards to reduce surgical site infections issued by the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI).
The SensiClip blade and wet clipper prep tray are designed for use with Cardinal Health’s Rechargeable Surgical Clipper System, which reportedly helps minimize the risk of infections. Disposable blades are easy to install and remove and help prevent cross contamination. The Cardinal Health clipper is completely submersible for thorough cleaning and disinfecting.
Each tray features a ready-to-use, deep two-compartment basin, presaturated soap sponge, a disposable, single-use clipper blade, cotton-tipped applicators and absorbent and water-resistant towels.
