Care givers in maternity wards, need to be protected from secondary infections from body fluids and secretions;  even ward Maids cleaning the wards after delivery need to be protected. Incontinent patients need not become bedwetters. These are issues that cannot be overlooked in ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all ages, as provided under the SDGs goal 3. One product addressing these concerns is the Nightingale Towel Underpad.

The Nightingale Towel Underpad is a disposable moisture- absorbent sheet that is placed on a bed, directly under an individual who may be experiencing incontinence problems. The Nightingale Underpad is made to provide comfort on the skin of the user. It provides a better sleeping experience than the rubber mackintosh. It is also used in paediatric cases to prevent infants from wetting the matrass. Nightingale Towel Underpads can also be used when transporting incontinent patients by simply placing the soft absorbent sheet on the car seat to protect the seat from body liquids.

Midwives do not need to worry about new born babies being contaminated with the mother’s body fluids usually gathered on the mackintosh; using the Nightingale Towels Underpad ensures that all body liquids are absorbed neatly. Ward Maids have little or no cleaning to do; all they need do is roll – up the used underpad and dispose.  These Underpads are also helpful for VVF patients as they prevent wetness of beddings thereby reducing stigma.

Nightingale underpads are also handy in managing burns patients. When placed under a burns patient, the Nightingale underpad absorbs the oozing from the burns and keeps the skin dry, thereby reducing stickiness and also preventing contamination against non- sterile bedding. Nightingale underpads can also be used during surgical operations.

Nightingale underpads come in a bundle of 10 packs; each pack contains 5 sheets. The size of each sheet of Nightingale underpad is 60 X 90cm.
