It cannot be surgically repaired or replaced due to her health.I am asking for any information, suggestions or comments on how to change a diaper on a patient when their right hip prosthetic is dislocated and cannot be surgically repaired or replaced. I know she is not the only person this has ever happened to. She is also, very limited on how far she can roll to the opposite side


Please let me know if you have any information.


Thanking everyone in advance,


Kim

When you're changing her, cut the old brief off. Just cut it up the sides with scissors and remove it.

When you're ready to place a fresh brief on her have her lay flat on her back, thread her ankles through the leg holes. Your back is to her now. Then pull the brief up. When you get the brief to her thighs inch it up little by little so as not to jostle her hip.

This might not work for all body types.

How people age... My friend just turned 70, and she races up the hills and parks like nobody's business... You look at her and she looks like she is still 30...

I don't have those genes,,,, jeans... wish I did.

She tells me, I look older than she is... Well, that does it... I will try to walk faster.

As far as turning. quick and fast to get over the discomfort.

Im not sure, but you place a sheet(chuck, or pink slip-yes a hospital had one called the pink slip) under her and roll the sheet so you can place her in the best position to change her? Yo will be doing all the moving, and she will endure the discomfort until she is changed..
