Nurse's Notes

Sterile Cotton Tipped Applicators:
  • Keeping a box of these on hand is always a good idea and might be found useful by many family members. I advise family caregivers to use these STERILE applicators when applying ointments and cleaning out wounds and ulcers as opposed to those Q tip types which are not sterile. For a few dollars more why risk possible contamination. Easy to travel with due to nature of individual packaging.

    Tongue Depressors Non-Sterile:
  • Non sterile ones are often used in general medical practice.

    Tongue Depressors Sterile:
  • Be sure to use these sterile tongue depressors for any wound care applications.
