November we had 2 new patients revieving TVEC, we had our TVEC reps come in and inservice our housekeeping team as the handling guidelines were updated to reflect a less toxic, less expensive alcohol based cleaner for pharmacy prep & administration room cleaning.
We do still isolate a room and close it until it is cleaned & we do have disposable curtains in that room to stream line the process- we keep one room on our exam room floor prepared with the disposable curtain for any infectiuos issues or for these treatment patients.
PPE: we still gown, glove and wear mask with protective eye shield. All potentially soiled materials are disposed of in red bag waste.
The visit & education session was very helpful from our local rep.
