Nursing Home Resident

Elderly incontinent patients in nursing homes are vulnerable to urinary tract infections (UTIs) and skin conditions.  The federal government and states have guidelines in place to ensure patients receive quality consistent personal care.  Government regulations require facilities to provide residents with a personal care routine that includes clean and dry skin from urine and feces.1   Facilities typically change a patient’s adult brief or adult diaper approximately every two hours to ensure compliance with personal care guidelines.  These frequent changes force facilities to consider cost over quality and comfort when selecting adult diapers or protective underwear.  Adult diapers have improved in absorbency and quality over the years.  Specialty fibers that are highly absorbent and unique cores that incorporate quick wick technology to pull moisture away from the body help foster healthy skin.  High quality incontinence products typically have a higher price tag.    Whether you are a caregiver in a nursing home, hospice facility or home setting AllegroMedical.com offers you value branded diapers to meet your patients’ incontinence needs.
