My question is regarding Calcium alginate and duoderm. I know a wound bed needs to be moist to heal, although, not wet or it will macerate. I understand the use of calcium alginate. However, our facility has begun using cal. alginate and duoderm on things such as pinpoint st 2 on the buttocks, say on someone that has a foley, and not incont. of bm. They put the cal. alginate on dry, and cover it with duoderm. They are also using this on small scabbed area's. I have not seen them use the alginate yet, on someone whose wound is draining, or on a wound bed that is dry and needs to be kept moist. It seems this has become the standard for using the cal. alginate and duoderm. I am not understanding this rationale. It is working on some, and making some wounds worse. Does anyone use this the same way? Please respond. Thank you.
