Scrubs to Decrease the Spread of MRSA
A recent Virginia Commonwealth University study document show our fluid repelling medical scrubs may play a role in decreasing the risk of MRSA transmission to patients.
Numerous studies last year confirmed the presence of high amounts of bacteria on healthcare worker scrubs and lab coats. Led by Gonzalo Bearman, M.D., M.P.H., associate professor of internal medicine in the VCU School of Medicine and associate hospital epidemiologist at the VCU Medical Center, the study “A Crossover Trial of Antimicrobial Scrubs to Reduce Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus Burden on Healthcare Worker Apparel.” According to Bearman’s research, the fluid barrier / antimicrobial scrubs had “a statistically significant 4-7 log, (greater than a 99.99%), decrease in the overall mean log CFU MRSA count (amount of MRSA on the scrubs) compared to normal scrubs.
The Researchers Conclude: “The antimicrobial scrubs tested were associated with decreased MRSA apparel microbial bioburden. When bundled with known infection prevention strategies such as hand hygiene, antimicrobial impregnated apparel may limit the bacterial burden of the inanimate environment. For settings with high rates of hospital-acquired infections with drug-resistant pathogens such as MRSA, the use of antimicrobial apparel may be a useful adjunct to other infection prevention measures.”
What Makes Them Different? These fluid repelling medical scrubs uses a dual mode of action to prevent the bacteria from being acquired and retained on the garment. The first mode of action, the fluid barrier, prevents organisms from being acquired on the garment. As the infectious contaminants or fluids are repelled, the numbers of organisms that remain on the fabric are significantly reduced. By reducing the number of organisms retained on the garment there is a decrease in the exposure time required for the antimicrobial to take action.
