Replacement for Redi-bath wipes?

  1. 1 Our OB unit recently stopped stocking Redi-bath wipes due to budget cuts and plumbing issues with patients flushing them. We loved using these to clean up c/section patients. We used the designated microwave for them and they were warm and comforting to the patient. More importantly, THEY HELPED THE NURSE DO HER JOB! Needless to say, we are upset we no longer have these to use. No one wants to go back to the bath basin bar of dial soap days. I am wondering if any other hospitals out there have an alternative that is budget and plumbing friendly? Thanks!

    I just use warm water on a washcloth, three or four washcloths. I've never felt it necessary to use soap for pericare postpartum. No one on our floor does.

    There's a new commercial on TV for some type of Windex-brand saniwipe. TV Mom pushes the dispenser top, swipes the surface to be cleansed, then disposes the wipe in the toilet & flushes!!!!

    Hey! If Windex can design a flushable swipe, why can't there be a heathcare flushable cleansing swipe???

    I guess it all comes down to $$$.

    If they think there is a market, they will develop it! I bet there could be a huge market when you look at hospitals and LTC.

    Think we should get a jump on everybody else and buy some stock?!?!?

    We only get the good old fashioned basins with warm tap water and leftover laps from the c/s or delivery table.
