How many cases have occurred?
From a brief internet search we’ve been able to identify numerous other devastating cases of inadvertent chlorhexidine administration resulting in disabling injury and deaths. They’ve occurred because of pourable almost colourless versions of chlorhexidine (centre in image).
We’ve started compiling a list here – we have no doubt this represents only a fraction of the true number. We have no access to error report databases – if you’re aware of other cases then please let us know.
We can put a stop to this if the regulating authorities ban indistinct pourable chlorhexidine – see here for more details and sign the petition make them act.
