Clinical Information

Pressured by Pressure Ulcers
The average hospital spends $400,000 to $700,000 (US) in direct costs to treat pressure ulcers.1 In one study, patients with fecal incontinence were 22 times more likely to have pressure ulcers than those without the condition.2 Since almost half of all pressure ulcers form on the sacrum or ischium,3 consistent incontinence care is a must for any pressure ulcer prevention program.

Barrier to Compliance
Traditional incontinence care methods require so many steps, barrier application is often overlooked. In a recent poll of wound, ostomy and continence nurses, 84% said their staff does not fully comply with incontinence skin care protocols.4 The result is process variation.

Protection in Every Cloth
One comprehensive pressure ulcer prevention program—featuring Comfort Shield® as the exclusive skin protectant— improved protocol compliance and reduced sacral/buttock pressure ulcers by over 89%!5 “In this study, delivering the skin protectant with a disposable washcloth simplified the process considerably and led to its adoption as the new standard of care for use in incontinence cleanup.”
