Are you going into hospital soon but worried about superbugs, viruses and bacteria? If so, you may be interested in the bug beating Patientpak kit.
It includes sprays, wipes and a body wash containing a patented anti-microbial formula - the most powerful skin-friendly one available - according to the makers. The kit also includes surface wipes which will kill a wide spectrum of bugs and a hand sanitizing spray to leave your skin refreshed and free of microbes.
Other items included are a nailbrush, soap, protected toothbrush, toothpaste and a lip balm. There is also a comprehensive guide to personal hygiene and for those who do not like to challenge authority there’s even a small polite bedside notice asking carers to kindly wash their hands before treating you.
Dr Guy Braverman, who helped create the formula in PatientPak, says this innovation gives people an extra line of defence so that they can create a safe zone around their area.
The kit costs €27 (including postage ) and is available from Holland & Barrett, Tallaght Unit 231, The Square Town, Tallaght, Dublin 13 (the only Irish outlet ) or online from www.patientpak.com The website is very user-friendly and full of useful tips and information about superbugs, viruses and bacteria.
