Dear burn nurses,
I like to know what is the most effective way to remove surgical staples and prevent having embedded staples in the patient's skin.
I believed that most of us who work in the burn unit experienced removing hundreds & hundreds of staples for patient that undergoing skin grafting. The procedure is frustrating and patient is normally in pain & sometimes yelling.
I think the worst is having staples embedded and overlooked. What is the best method to prevent having embedded staples? Do anyone have any suggestion or good idea to prevent it. Can share with me?
