My aunt asked me to bring her peri pads the next time I visit her. I researching them, I see they are for wound care such as after having a baby or having blisters down there due to sitting for long periods in waste. I am very upset for her. What else can I do? I will bring the pads. Would vaseline help? Special wipes? Speaking with nursing supervisor? any help is appreciated.

I've also seen peri pads used for urine leakage so the clothes won't get soiled. Are you sure she has wounds?

I would speak to the nursing supervisor about what they are aeeing in terms of the condition of your aunt's perinium. Are they telling her she needs peri pads? Ao why aren't they supplying them?
