GOJO Industries offers its new C.A.R.E. Solutions Director of Nursing Skin Care Toolkit as an aid in making resident skin care in long-term care facilities easy and effective. The kit of educational materials is intended for use with the GOJO line of PROVON® hand, body and perineal washes; lotions, shampoos and other products for elderly skin care.
Named for its contents, C.A.R.E. stands for Customized Materials, Action, Recognition and Education. It contains posters, brochures, presentations, videos and other materials that engage and inform staff on proper elderly skin care to increase comfort and prevent pain, infection and skin breakdown.
The kit engages staff and residents with a customizable program kick-off letter and cards that demonstrate commitment to elderly skin care with high-quality products. Action Leaflets with easy-to-remember name acronyms assist staff in following proper skin care regimens; for example, C.H.R.I.S. reminds caregivers to Clean, Hydrate, Regularly Inspect and Soothe.
The kit's S.K.I.N. Seal of Approval Recognition Certificates recognize staff for following the basic skin care regimen. Educational videos on Skin Preservation, Bedside Bath, Incontinence Care, Showering and Tub Bathing, and Perineal Care show the important steps in elderly skin care that maintain skin integrity.
Skin Science 101 and Perineal Care PowerPoint presentations, and Frequently Asked Questions round out the package by covering important topics and procedures for elderly skin care.
"By combining our mild and effective PROVON products with the practices taught in our C.A.R.E. Solutions Toolkit, caregivers can provide excellent elderly skin care that enhances well-being for residents," said Tina Magazine, GOJO healthcare marketing director.
