Sometimes when I have a lighter patient I will open his diaper, put my left arm under his knees, lift his butt, pull out the dirty diaper.
After cleaning him I will again lift his butt, put the clean diaper under and close it.
Is there anything wrong with this? Does it sound any more stressful on the patient’s body, skin etc than other methods?
Today I did this with a patient’s wife present and she ran to the head nurse complaining that pulling out the diaper might injure the patient’s skin.
He doesn’t have any special problem to my knowledge.
The traditional method of rolling the patient on his side and sticking half the diaper under before rolling him on his back is also causing friction with skin.
