OK, I’ve tried searching the archive, and I don’t see a response to cover this.
My husband was sent to a “skilled nursing” facility for 17 days for OT/PT rehab after more than 2 weeks in the hospital. He has Alzheimer’s. He was urinary incontinent when he went in, and they sent him home yesterday fecal incontinent as well. So now the Depends Fit-Flex pull-up briefs aren’t cutting it anymore, since they have NO protection in the back/underneath. The facility luckily threw some of the diaper-style briefs with tabs into his belongings (they stole just about every other article of clothing). Problem is that the directions on the package are crap (pardon the pun) and I cannot get the paper off the “sticky” part of the tabs! I never had children, so I’ve never had to deal with a diaper in my life, and I am BEYOND frustrated. I had basically two days to get a hospital bed, wheelchair, gait belt, raised toilet seat, new sheets, grab bars, etc. etc., scramble to get a company to send a “caregiver” (they sent an EIGHTY YEAR OLD who had a touch of dementia himself!), and now I am just too beat down to deal with diaper tabs!
Do any of you know if there’s some “trick” to this?
