Duo of Vernacare cleaning products are made available on prescription

Vernacare : 07 July, 2008  (New Product)
Two Vernacare hospital products, Senset Skin Cleansing Foam and Vernagel, that offer patients recovering in the community all the comfort, care and dignity they received while in hospital are now available on prescription.
Senset Skin Cleansing Foam and Vernagel also make life easier and reduce the risk of cross infection for nurses and carers.

Senset Cleansing Foam is clinically proven to help maintain the integrity of healthy skin for incontinent patients, loosening dried on soiling without the need to rub skin and so helping to avoid skin breakdown. Due to its high ‘wetting out’ properties, Senset gently loosens and lifts soiling, making cleaning quicker and more comfortable for the patient.

Senset removes the need to use soap and water, which can result in the drying and breakdown of skin. Its directional spray gives nurses better control and prevents spillages associated with soap and water. Its high water repellent barrier protects skin from acid effects of urine and prevents dermatitis developing from damp skin

Using Senset It is possible to wipe on and wipe off using only two hand movements, which reduces the chances of infection and cross infection, while cleansing the patient quickly. The product contains a long acting deodorant which makes patients’ and nurses’ lives more pleasant.

Senset is PH balanced with high levels of emollients and moisturisers. It also contains a silicone barrier to protect against rewetting and subsequent skin breakdown. This reduces the need for expensive barrier creams and cleanses and protects sore, sensitive, dry or damaged skin.

Patients can avoid spills from bedpans and urinals with the Vernagel absorbent powder, which solidifies liquids. It is designed to cope with bodily fluids – trapping them in a dry, semi solid gel that is convenient and easy to dispose of. This minimises or eliminates residual odours and saves on laundry and cleaning costs. Vernagel eases the workload of nurses and carers and reduces the risk of cross infection.

One 6g sachet is sufficient and can be placed in bedpans, slipper bedpans or urinals before use to prevent spillages or leaks. Loose powder can also be shaken onto the floor or other surfaces to soak up spillages.

One of the biggest benefits of Vernagel is that it protects patient dignity and increases confidence – saving them the embarrassment of accidental spills.

Martyn Gibson, product manager for Vernacare, said: “Patients and community nurses have been asking us to make these products available on prescription for some time, so we are delighted that patients will now be able to enjoy their benefits at home as well as in hospital”.
