Covidien discontinuing non-sterile alcohol prep pads
Covidien recently announced the discontinuation of its non-sterile alcohol prep pad product line sold under the brand names Webcol and Curity. The change takes effect in February. “In an effort to reassure our customers and reduce any risk to patients, we have made the decision to discontinue these products,” said Jim Clemmer, the firm's president. However, Covidien will continue to offer equivalent sterile products as a replacement for the discontinued non-sterile codes, he said.
