Has anyone else heard of these? At my facility (90% male residents) we put them on most of our incontinent residents. Basically it's where you take a brief, poke a hole through it, pull the penis through the hole and wrap it around the penis in a ball. So the penis is all "wrapped" up. Then you just dress the resident in another brief and pants like normal. This is done so the guys don't soak their pants, sheets, wheel chair, etc. They've been doing it this way for at least 20 years. A new nurse just started, and she says this is "illegal" anywhere else. I have to admit, I was shocked and appalled at this practice when I started, but it really doesn't seem to cause any skin issues. I DO think we have more UTIs because of them. When i started, the staff educator told me they were harmless. I had never seen them before this place, does anyone else use them? Does it seem like a health issue?
