♥ This video is a patient teaching video so they can preform this procedure themselves. One thing I noticed they didn’t do is to write a dressing change date on the Tegaderm (clear film dressing). They state the dressing is ordered to be changed every seven days. You need to label the date last changed (and a you should initial it) so the next nurse will know when it needs to be changed.
*Consult your instructor and policy & procedure manual before preforming any nursing procedures. Some differences may exist between this resource and your institution’s desired method (e.g., donning sterile gloves or method of cleansing).
