Skin Care

At Eastern Health Long-Term Care, we have practices to help us assess resident’s skin and associated care needs on a regular basis.

These may include:

    • Risk assessments on admission and at routine intervals;
    • Daily skin inspections;
    • Skin care including: turning, repositioning and using moisturizers and protective creams;
    • Specialized equipment and more frequent assessments by the care team if you are high risk;
    • Nutrition assessments by a registered dietitian;
    • Consultation by the Clinical Nurse Specialist as an expert in wound prevention/management as required.
