Patient Management - Decontamination (Cont.)

Protect non-contaminated wounds with waterproof dressings

Contaminated wounds:

Irrigate and gently scrub with surgical sponge

Extend wound debridement for removal of contamination only in extreme cases and upon expert advice

Avoid overly aggressive decontamination

Change dressings frequently

Decontaminate intact skin and hair by washing with soap & water

Remove stubborn contamination on hair by                            cutting with scissors or electric clippers

Promote sweating

Use survey meter to monitor progress of                     decontamination
