    I took the risk........the swearing WAS in context, I think. As well as amusing.

    BTW, I just HAD to have the avatar when I saw it, "Nursie, I like it firm and fruity!" :chuckle

    I love Blackadder, although I think my favourite series is probably Blackadder goes forth.... much more interesting than clinisan, not sure why i chose this topic, actually not too sure why I chose nursing today... Is this second year blues, or arealisation that it is too late to go and work for mcD's???

    I like the "goes forth" series too. Don't worry whisper, I had several "blue" periods during my training too (usually when I failed an essay). You'll get through it and it passes v quicky, and before you know it, you'll be qualified! If you find you don't like nursing, you'll always have that university qualification behind you.

    I have a part time job in the bank as an auxillary... by mistake they sent me a job application form to go full time( they don't usually send this to student nurses) and it was just so tempting...

    Hiya we also use Clinisan by the truck load, never come across any problems with it, however sometimes we do get a product called Readiwash Foam by Robinsoncare, which I much prefer. It feels much nicer and smells nicer than clinisan.

    A bit of advertising on it can be found http://www.robinsoncare.com/ContCare_ReadiWash.htm

    I know this probably won't help but I found this article on Clinisan

    Thanks for the link Karen, I could only find 3 articels that were usuable for my esay, so I have been advised to change my topic... instead I now have to write about leg ulcers and compression bandaging a topic there is so much research on I am drowning in it and have no clue where to start.

    Thanks again though

    Ditto. We also started using the Robinsons stuff a few months ago - I think it's wonderful. Nice smelling.
    Last few months we have also been using new wipes which you warm up in a microwave (wipe use only micro). You can wash the patient with them, they dry themselves and moisturise. And smell wonderful. The management love 'em as it saves money on linen and wash-bowl/soap/flannel etc cost.
    We love 'em as they save time, they smell lovely and are great for patient independence use, as if they are weak as they don't have to use soap and water as that can be a bit tiring. They are disposable.

    I can't remember what they are called, I have been off on hol for a week (Yipee!). When I remember, I will post a name and website.
    I love 'em!

    we used to use clinisan but now it has been all but barred from the hospital because of infection risk, transfering a can from one pt to another. Think about it!! As for being cheap we would have had to allot one can per pt and thrown can away when discharged. Saw loads of cans thrown away hardly used because staff kept taking new can into isolation room were the pt had MRSA.

    I do miss it though

    We use a can a patient.

    The Warm Wipes I was raving about are infact called "Oasis Bed Bath". (The website address came up as "error" if you want to try anyway www.oasiswipes.com)

    I don't know if these will be any good to anyone, but here goes:

    www.cambridgemedical.net/clinisun.htm

    Cooper P, Gray D (2001) Comparrison of two skin care regimes for incontinence BRITISH JOURNAL OF NURSING (supplement) Vol 10 Number 6, page s6-s20

    Cooper P (2000) The use of clinisan in the skin care of the incontinent patient BRITISH JOURNAL OF NURSING Vol 9 Number 7 Page 445-449

    I couldn't find enough information so in the end I did my essay on the use of compression therapy to treat venous leg ulcers, which there was too much information to shake a stick at!!!
