Incontinence affects at least 50% of patients in resident care and long-term care facilities, according to the National
Association for Continence. While incontinence can be treated and improved for individual patients, the daily management,
care, and clean up puts demands on caregivers and staff. With the right
continence care products and supplies, you can reduce staff time spent on laundry and cleaning, and help protect
patients from skin damage and treatments.
To prevent skin damage, it is important that patients gently wash immediately after an incontinent incident.
Disposable moistened wipes, and washcloths are a must on every facility's checklist.
