47% of hospital patients are incontinent, and of those, 45% have incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) during their stay. Incontinent patients are more than three times as likely to develop a relevant pressure injury than continent patients and skin can be compromised in as little as 15 minutes after exposure to moisture.
Incontinence can also negatively impact a patient’s physical and mental health, and quality of life.
Improving the patient experience and reducing skin breakdown/pressure injuries have a measurable impact on patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes and hospital economics.
That’s why the WatchCare™ Incontinence Management System was designed to elevate the patient experience and enhance safety through real-time incontinence care by:
- Protecting patients’ skin
- Improving patient experience
- Optimizing caregiver effectiveness
