Basic Clinical Skills: The Bed Bath

The Bed Bath is an important part of the individualized care many patients receive while hospitalized, and is one of the basic skills all nurses must know.  The bed bath not only helps keep the patient clean but also:
  • Maintains healthy skin by providing stimulation and increasing circulation
  • Provides the patient with mild exercise
  • Provides an opportunity for close observation of any skin condition
The time spent giving a bed bath is ideal for assessing the condition of the patient's skin, interacting with the patient and providing important emotional support.
