Meeting the hygiene needs of patients is a fundamental aspect of nursing care. This practical and introductory guide outlines and emphasises the nursing skills required to meet the essential personal hygiene care needs of patients in various care settings.

It explores care of the eyes, ears, mouth, nails and hair, and provides evidence-based rationales for each procedure. Methods of washing your patient are discussed, and bed-making and patient positioning is explored. Each chapter provides the necessary anatomy and physiology, as well as common conditions, safety issues, privacy and dignity, cultural and religious considerations and infection control issues.
