At our last DON conference there was one facility that was piloting a skin tear prevention practice of having high risk residents drink 1tsp of olive oil daily (I believe). They saw a significant decrease in skin tears, sheering, breakdown all together. I'm not sure how many got on the bandwagon, but several have reported similar results. We've not implemented this yet. But have any of you heard of such a thing? Not sure where the idea came from but no literature yet to be found. What do you think?
