Topical medicaments used by patients with diseases of the skin were examined for microbial contamination. Ps. aeruginosa was isolated from stock pots of a diluted emulsifying ointment used as a soap substitute in the bath. Cross-con tamination between patients and medicament was subsequently shown to have occurred.
Water beds in use in this hospital were found to be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The addition of sodium hypochlorite, giving a final concentration of 200 parts/106 available chlorine, was found to be effective in preventing microbial contamination over a 6-month study period.
Topical medicaments used in the treatment and prevention of pressure sores in patients in three hospitals were examined for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus contamination. Contamination rates were found to vary between hospitals and were affected by differences in the packaging of the product and in the method of application used by the nursing staff.
One thousand, nine hundred and seventy-seven pharmaceutical products used in the home were examined for microbial contamination. Viable micro-organisms were recovered from 14.0% of samples. Medicines used in the home are apparently not exposed to the same opportunities for contamination as those used in hospital.
