BREAK THE CHAIN OF SKIN BREAKDOWN
Incontinence of urine and/or stool puts an individual at greater risk for pressure ulcer development. The normal protective acid mantle on the skin is lost when exposed to the alkalinity of feces or urine. Ammonia in urine is caustic, making the skin susceptible to breakdown, and fecal contact with broken skin can cause infection and deeper skin damage.
Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD)
Moisture from incontinence may be a precursor to pressure ulcer development by macerating the skin and increasing friction. Fecal incontinence is a greater risk factor for pressure ulcer development, because the stool contains bacteria and enzymes that are caustic to the skin.6policies from the US Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding pressure ulcer prevention has focused attention on the differential diagnosis of IAD versus pressure ulcer, and its influence on pressure ulcer risk.
Beeckman and colleagues recommended using a pH-balanced skin cleanser, skin moisturizer, and moisture-repellent skin barrier for all residents at risk of IAD, noting that perineal skin cleansers or no-rinse foams are preferable to cleansing with traditional washcloths, soap, and water. Gray echoed these recommendations, adding that the cleansing product should not compromise the skins moisture barrier. Voegeli found that soap and water are most commonly recommended for general skin cleansing, but warned that they can be damaging to a patient with or at risk for IAD.
