Many people may think that an alcohol prep that is saturated with isopropyl alcohol does not do much, but it does. One of the most important things before injecting an insulin needle, or iv catheter needle into the skin is to disinfect the injection site. Millions of different types of bacteria sit on the skin at any giving moment of the day. By using an antiseptic pad like the Curity alcohol prep pad for skin, preparation can help reduce the bacteria counts by approximately 82-91% and also help prevent any infections at the injection site.
