CHEVY CHASE, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In accordance with its commitment to wellness and safety, Riviera Health Resort, a leading post-acute care and rehabilitation facility in Coral Gables, Florida, has become Partners in Prevention with the Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® program.
“Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® antiseptic is a hygiene breakthrough for reducing bacterial burdens in healthcare settings. Like a hand sanitizer for the nose, Nasal Sanitizer® acts as a safe, effective nasal shield to help prevent the spread of infections,” says John Willimann, President of Global Life Technologies Corp. from Chevy Chase, Maryland and the maker of Nozin product. “We are thrilled that a state of the art, five-star healthcare facility like Riviera joins with top healthcare professionals in adopting our clinically proven Nasal Sanitizer® product.”
Dr. Ismael Roque-Velasco, Chief Administrative Officer of Riviera Health Resort, says, “At Riviera Health Resort we strive to present the best possible care. Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® provides an important innovation to help reduce the risk of infection for patients, staff and visitors. This hygiene tool promotes our goals of wellness and maximum recovery for our guests.”
According to research cited by John Willimann, approximately 30% of the population at large carry Staph aureus in the nose and 50% of wound infections can be directly traced to patients’ own nasal bacteria. “Until now, the nose would often escape hygiene protocols,” Willimann explains. “When you realize that a person touches his or her nose an average 250 times a day, Nasal Sanitizer® use in health care settings can be critical to help prevent infection.”
“Not long ago, hand sanitizer was the new tool in hygiene to control the spread of disease,” says Dr. Roque-Velasco. “Today, we see Nozin® Nasal Sanitizer® as being at the forefront of prevention.” Watch a video of Dr. Roque-Velasco at Nozin.com and on YouTube.

Nasal Sanitizer® solution is moisturizing and is applied with a swab to the vestibule of the nose.
