Dressing ChangesSun, 09/25/2011 - 2:16PM
I do my husband's dressing changes as I am sure many other caregivers do. I am curious as to how other people do the dressing changes not necessarily what supplies you use but logistics. I started to buy a hospital tray table to use for laying out supplies and keeping a sterile field. Then my son suggested using an ironing board which could be adjusted. My husband lays on the bed which is high profile. I have degenerative disc disease so bending over it not good since I am 5'11. So, I kneel while I am changing the dressing. The ironing board is at my kneeling height which works. What are your logistics when changing dressings?
