Perisept or OxyCide Exposure Causes Dangerous Side Effects

Perisept is a sporicidal disinfectant cleaning chemical designed for daily use in hospitals. It is specifically designed to kill clostridium difficile (“C. diff”) and claims a faster kill time and effectiveness rating compared to many of its competitor products. Perisept has a similar chemical makeup as a competing disinfectant cleaner called OxyCide. Both are primarily comprised of peracetic acid (also known as peroxyacetic acid or PAA), acetic acid, and hydrogen peroxide. Inhalation exposure to Perisept or OxyCide can cause fainting, vomiting, coughing, watery eyes, and respiratory complications that may lead to permanent discomfort and disfigurement (such as pulmonary embolisms or chemical induced pneumonia).

If you have been exposed to Perisept or OxyCide and suffered injury, you may have grounds for a lawsuit to recover compensation from the makers of these products for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and other damages.
