The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine,
studied regular baby wipes containing a chemical called Chlorhexidine.
Doctors found that the wipes reduced MRSA cases by 23
percent and blood infections by 28 percent while patients are in the hospital.
This is a major discovery in the prevention of MRSA, which is
a highly-contagious staph bacterium. Researchers are also hopeful about the
study, since baby wipes are cost-effective. Although MRSA is drug-resistant,
this study shows that there are ways to prevent it.
