QUIZ: Get Skin Smart – Neonatal Skin Injury from Surgical Adhesives

Share

Among the many aspects of neonatal care is the proper care of the newborn’s skin to ensure and promote the ability of the skin to perform its essential functions. Critical to this care is avoiding injury to the skin that can commonly occur given the wide use of medical devices used to treat and monitor a myriad of issues that may arise in neonates. When skin injury does occur, adhesives used to cover, for example, pressure injuries, are important to protect the skin while healing.
