Rhonda WILSON, Sally Bristow, Sophie Wilson

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookChapter

Abstract

This chapter identifies and discusses the ways by which nurses assist people with their elimination needs. People usually prefer to attend to their toileting needs independently and, when nurses are required to assist with these very personal activities, it is important that they do so in a way that promotes dignity and comfort. It is critical that the human body maintains healthy, regular patterns of metabolic waste elimination. It is also important that nurses are able to talk freely with people about this because, by doing so, they promote health and well-being for the people in their care.
