Importance of handwashing
Handwashing is the most important thing you can do to safeguard your health and protect yourself against germs. Your nurse will teach you how to wash and dry your hands appropriately.
Prepare your treatment environment
- Be well lit
- Be free from any drafts of air
- Be away from open windows
- Be free of clutter
- No pets must be present in the room
- Have a phone and flashlight handy in case of an emergency
To ensure the safety of the treatment, you need a clean work surface, cleaned with a recommended cleaning product and large enough to allow you to organize your supplies.
During your training, you will learn about all the required supplies to perform your treatment at home.
