so i thought i was ready for my states tomorrow, but my mind is going blank on the small stuff but the stuff that could fail me!

How many wash cloths should you be using for JUST peri care? you need to make the mitt, wash with different sections of cloth, then rinse with the same cloth? then roll pt over and wash and rinse peri anal area with same cloth??? For some reason, im completely blank on this skill, all about the cloth!

i appreciate any input!!!

Peri care was one of the skills I was tested on during my state exam. I basically brought in a stack of washcloths because I wanted to have too many, instead of not enough. After switching areas of the cloth for each stroke, I got myself a new one, instead of just rinsing the used one. And I definitely got a new one before doing the back... At work, we use wipes that are thrown away, so it's great - I can use as many as my heart desires! I don't know if this helped at all....good luck!
