Up to 50 percent of nursing home patients live with incontinence on a daily basis¹, which may lead to the development of Incontinence-associated Dermatitis (IAD). Additionally, IAD has been reported to occur in 43 percent of incontinent hospitalized patients and up to 95 percent of incontinent patients in the ICU.²̓³ With IAD being a well-known risk factor in the development of pressure ulcers, keeping your patients clean and comfortable is important.
