Study

A Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in New Jersey: Expected Value of Remedy Skincare Products and Remedy/Restore® Briefs in an At-Risk Resident Population for Pressure Ulcer and Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis Prevention. Shannon, Ronald, MPH, Fisher, Kevin, DON. 2008.

Background

Pressure ulcers in nursing homes represent a significant problem for residents in terms of morbidity, pain and reduced quality of life. They represent a major cost to the facility in terms of treatment, regulatory fines and potential litigation.

Objective

To quantify the reduction in pressure ulcer incidence, incontinence-acquired dermatitis and pressure ulcer costs at a long-term care facility when they use Remedy skincare products and the Remedy/Restore Briefs coated with Remedy Skin Repair Cream.

Methodology

This was a retrospective cohort study based on the data collected by the staff. The Remedy skin care products used constituted a complete care system, encompassing cleansers, moisturizers, protectants and antifungal products when applicable.

Findings

Pressure ulcer incidence dropped from 17% to 0%, where it has remained into 2008. The incidence rate for incontinence-associated dermatitis reduced from 30% to 0.04% during the study period. Savings are estimated at an average $861.00 per resident at-risk for pressure ulcers over their length of stay in the nursing home. This considers all at-risk residents whether they acquire a pressure ulcer or not. Savings are produced from reduction in nosocomial pressure ulcers and incontinence associated dermatitis treatment. Savings come from reduced labor, medications, medical products, etc. used in their resolution.

Impact

According to the study, “The main factor for pressure ulcer reduction in this evaluation was skin care using Remedy product therapy that highlights a silicone-based dermal nourishing emollient skin care regimen.”
