Switch to disposable incontinence underpads and wipes
Did you know:
Live virus has been present in the stool of confirmed COVID-19 patients, indicating possible spread through fecal transmission3 Supporting fact: COVID-19 may remain viable from hours to days on a variety of surfaces2
A simple change to help limit the unintentional transfer of harmful bacteria is to switch to single-use products.
A study printed in the American Journal of Infection Control showed that 93% of hospital linens retained viable microorganisms even after being laundered4.
Contain and dispose versus launder and reuse
Stop using reusable (laundered) underpads. Instead, use a Premium disposable underpad.
Additional benefits include:
Skin Health & Resident Dignity: A dual action core which wicks away fluid from the skin and helps neutralize unpleasant odors
Many Cardinal Health™ underpads come with a strength claim, allowing for the lift and reposition of residents up to 400lbs (Eliminates the need for an additional draw sheet on the bed)
Stop using washcloths and basins for incontinence care clean up. Instead, use disposable wet wipes.
Pre-moistened and easily dispensed out of soft packs or hard tubs
