Superior Disposable Bathing Wipes
HiCare Bath is the superior disposable waterless bathing solution, providing both patients and care-givers with unmatched benefits. With proven cost savings and superior health outcomes, HiCare Bath is an excellent choice for your facility.
In stark contrast with the thin materials used by some competitor brands, HiCare Bath wipes feature a luxuriously thick needle punched non-woven fabric, and are impregnated with a unique solution which features two emollients to soften and moisturise the skin. With each use of our Bath products, the patient’s skin is simultaneously cleaned and nourished, without leaving any sensation of residue. Unless directed, there is no need to apply a moisturiser to the skin after using HiCare Bath.
HiCare Bath was specifically developed for high dependency applications, including consideration for the needs of the long-term bed bound in both hospital and aged care facilities who may have less than optimal skin integrity. Where soap and water bathing can deplete the lipids from a patient’s skin and put them at risk of dry skin damage and pressure ulcers, HiCare Bath’s formulation features skin nurturing ingredients to enhance the skin’s integrity.
A clinical trial found the use of HiCare Health’s bed bathing protocols can help to:
Our unique and superior formulation also features minimal chemical preservatives, is alcohol, latex, and soap-free, and does not promote microbial growth. These unique properties make our disposable bathing system one of the most hygienic and efficient available.
HiCare Bath can dramatically enhance the comfort and care levels of bed-bound patients. The wipes can be used straight from the packaging, or, for a warm bath, HiCare Bath can be gently warmed in a microwave or warm water prior to use. If the patient is febrile or it’s a hot day, it’s also possible to cool in the refrigerator. We recommend asking your patient how they would like their bath prepared.
This superior solution completely negates the need for the use of water, basins, towels and soaps, helping to reduce health and safety risks in the workplace. As HiCare Bath’s unique formula also does not promote microbial growth, it is one of the most hygienic and efficient bathing solutions for bed-bound patients.
Our products have been proven to provide facilities with savings of about 50% in both time and costs.
