If you are facing surgery, you've probably talked with your doctor and researched on your own to learn about potential complications and how you can prevent them. You want to do everything possible to ensure good results. Now you can take a simple step to help prevent a surgical site infection. Ask your doctor about preparing your skin before surgery with Sage's rinse-free 2% Chlorhexidine Gluconate cloths.

What is Chlorhexidine Gluconate?

Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) is an antiseptic that helps reduce bacteria that can cause infection, including MRSA. Sage's 2% CHG cloths contain an FDA-approved formula that stays on your skin where it’s needed most. Ordinary bottled CHG soaps require rinsing in the shower. With Sage 2% CHG Cloths, none of the bacteria-fighting ingredient goes down the drain!

Easy skin Preparation

Our soft cloths comfortably conform to body contours to thoroughly coat skin with our CHG formula. There's no need for a tub, shower or additional water. There's never been an easier way to prepare skin before surgery, especially if you have mobility limitations.

What you should know about surgical site infections

Each year, thousands of patients contract surgical site infections, resulting in greater likelihood of being readmitted to the hospital and spending time in an intensive care unit.1 Preparing your skin before surgery helps address a known risk factor for surgical site infections—microorganisms, or bugs, on the skin.2 In fact, most surgical site infections come from bacteria already found on a patient's skin. MRSA, VRE and Acinetobacter are just some of the bugs found on a patient's skin that can cause surgical site infections.

Be proactive to prevent surgical site infections. Ask your doctor about preparing your skin to prevent a potential infection. Put your mind at ease with Sage 2% CHG Cloths.

Sage 2% CHG Cloths mirror current clinical guidelines from both the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) and Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) regarding surgical site preparation.

"To gain the maximum antiseptic effect of Chlorhexidine, it must be allowed to dry completely and not be washed off."3
-SHEA Compendium of Strategies to Prevent Healthcare-Associated Infection in Acute Care Hospitals

"Patients undergoing open class I surgical procedures below the chin should have two (2) preoperative showers with Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) before surgery, when appropriate."4
