TechValidate Research on Nozin

5 Case Studies


Nozin Case Study

Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital

Introduction

This case study of Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital is based on a February 2019 survey of Nozin customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Patients that are colonized with MRSA no longer have to be placed in Contact Precautions resulting in higher satisfaction. Staff love to use Nozin as well.”

Challenges

Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital evaluated and ultimately selected a Nozin infection prevention program to address concerns with the following:

  • Infection prevention
  • Effectiveness of MRSA surveillance
  • Better antibiotic stewardship

Use Case

Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® antiseptic is applied to the following populations:

  • ICU patients
  • MRSA colonized patients
  • Pre-op patients
  • Post-op patients

Results

Since implementing the Nozin infection prevention program, Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital has achieved the following results:

  • Responsible reduction of MRSA Contact Precautions
  • Less time donning and doffing PPE
  • Increased patient satisfaction
  • Increased staff satisfaction
  • Improved antibiotic stewardship
  • Reduced infections
