Prospective Cluster-Controlled Crossover Trial
Comparing the impact of an improved hydrogen peroxide disinfectant and a quaternary ammonium-based disinfectant on surface contamination and healthcare outcomes.
Boyce J.M., Guercia K.A., Sullivan L., Havill N.L., Fekieta R., Kozakiewicz J. and Goffman D. This study compared the efficacy of a quaternary ammonium compound (Quat)-based disinfectant and an accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP®) disinfectant when used to clean high-touch surfaces in hospital wards. Bacterial counts were significantly reduced in the AHP® trials, and high-touch surfaces yielded no growth significantly more often when AHP® was used.
