I am new to home care and have a recently discharged from rehab patient who has alot of adhesive left on his skin from telemetry monitoring. I know it has been there for awhile because last I checked they dont do tele monitoring in rehab, and he was there for two weeks! He is very upset that no one seems to be able to get it off. Apparently so far alchohol nor soap and water has helped. Does anyone know a good safe way to do this?
The patient told me someone told him to use WD40!
I could just imagine writing that nursing note.....
Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!
