The purpose

The aim of this research is to examine if the brushless scrub is effective in reducing bioburden on the hands of the operating room (OR) personnel both with a prewash of one minute prior to scrub and without a prewash prior to scrub, and to compare the bioburden reduction between both methods. Hypothesis I: A soap and water prewash used prior to brushless scrub further decreases bioburden than brushless scrub alone. Hypothesis II: Brushless scrub is effective in reducing the bioburden measured just after the application of the brushless scrub within 20 seconds of application for both groups. Exploratory Hypothesis: We will also compare the bioburden measured before and at 1.5 minutes after application of the brushless scrub for both groups.
