Original Question: As I’m sure others may also be encountering, the use of tape in patient care areas has been a major focus of recent regulatory preparedness and infection control efforts. We have traditionally used various forms of tape on the floors in our gyms, hallways, etc. to demarcate various standardized test items (e.g. Peabody, BOT, functional hop testing). We are looking into various tape alternatives, and I wondered if anyone has come up with a solution that has worked well and been acceptable from an infection control standpoint? We are currently looking into inlay and surface paint options, and I’m curious what others have tried.
