Traditional bed bathing procedures necessitate protective sheets, bowls of water, hard to rinse soap and tiresome manipulation of the patient, all of which are eliminated with this new Clinicept® Patient care System.
Clinicept® Care macerator friendly Body washcloths eliminate the need for bowls of water reducing the risk of spillages on the bed, around electrical care equipment, and reducing the risk of slipping of wet floors and the need for lifting or moving patients or equipment.
The maceratior-friendly body washcloths are impregnated with a mild surfactant formula, pH balanced for healthy skin and contain no alcohol or lanolin. This makes it a much better solution for skin cleansing than soap, which is known to have the potential to dry skin, especially if not rinsed thoroughly. Clinicept® Care Body washcloths also contain a moisturiser leaving the skin feeling soft and supple after use.
A complete body washcloth not only saves time and money but also reduces the risk of the spread of infection. Each washcloth, once used, is disposed of, minimising cross-contamination risks as there is no need for reusable bathing items such as soap and flannels which can easily harbour bacteria.
