HurriSept is an appropriate hand hygiene agent for use before or after direct contact with patients, with or without glove use, and when in contact with patient equipment and materials or personal protective items. HurriSept is packaged in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser and has a berry scent. Thirty-four consultants evaluated HurriSept over a three-month period. This product received a 92% clinical rating.
