Keeping Incontinence Clean

No one likes the scent of urine or cleaning up the mess that accompanies incontinence. As our bodies age and our organs tire, people often lose control over their ability to urinate, and incontinence can be a terribly shameful and embarrassing issue for people of any age, male or female.

Incontinence can create a great deal of mess and require a huge amount of cleaning, which can be done far more comprehensively with the aid of the proper tools and products,  tools you need to knock out incontinence, and continue living your life worry free.

If you are a caretaker or live-in nurse, you want to take the best possible care of your patient, and do what is most convenient and considerate of their needs. In order to maintain the condition of your patient’s clothing and linens, it is important to have arrangements set up in case of emergencies, whether your patient has experienced sever incontinences, or the very occasional minor incontinence on a rare to seldom basis.

For severe cases of incontinence and full-on protection, TENA super brief max protection is an adult diaper which offers 100 percent incontinence protection, and confines urine to its absorbent walls. Prevail maximum bladder control is a liner that also offers heavy protection, and you can guarantee protection from accidents and messes with TENA extra absorbent underpads for your mattress. On the lighter side, Dignity and Stay Dry offer light and moderate protection for incontinence, with their signature poly briefs, adult diapers, and pads.

As an assistant, nurse, or caretaker, it is extremely important to keep all of your work sterile, especially when dealing with urine and fecal matter. To best ensure this, nitrile gloves offer protection from unpleasant spills and messes, and allow you to keep your hands clean and free of harmful germs and bacteria.

If your patient does experience an episode of incontinence, make sure you are well equipped and prepared to help them clean up themselves, and to get rid of any unwanted miasmas or fetid stenches that may linger after the fact. Aloe Vesta bathing cloths are disposable washcloths which are extremely useful in emergency situations, and don’t require any water in order to work, saving you and your patient from the trouble of having to try and climb into the shower or tub.

Another option for middle of the night emergencies is Prevail disposable washcloths. These washcloths are ready to go straight out of the package, and come in a convenient easy to use press and pull down reusable container.

For a deeper and more intense clean, consider using Aloe Vesta no-rinse cleansing foam, which can be used on any part of the body, and is soothing and nourishing to old, sensitive skin. During the winter months, skin, especially in geriatric patients, tends to become extremely dry, and requires regular moisturizing in order to prevent discomfort, cracking, and flaking. Sensi-care moisturizing cream provides nourishing and invigorating moisturization quickly, and is the perfect solution to dryness caused by diaper rash, or any dryness or epidermal discomfort in general.

Regardless of how well-prepared you are, urine smells, and its scent can linger and be particularly unpleasant for anyone who encounters it. Luckily, there is Medi-Air biological odor spray, which is available for well under $5, and can not only deodorize and replace the unpleasant stench with a much more pleasing scent, but actually attacks the odors and eliminates them from the source.

So whether you need diapers or underpads for your bed, moisturizers or wipes, or even deodorizing spray for those long, accident-ridden nights, the incontinence products you need can be found and easily purchased thanks to
