Abstract

The impressions of 200 patients (both medical and surgical) and 200 nursing staff (registered, enrolled and trainee enrolled nurses) in relation to two bed-bathing methods were compared by means of questionnaires and semi-structured interviews. Data regarding costs were obtained from appropriate cost centre managers. The results of the study found the soft towel bed-bathing method to be more cost effective and provide more patient and nurse satisfaction than the current bed-bathing method.
