Correct skin preparation for surgical procedures is a vital component of aseptic technique when working as a surgical nurse. This webinar will look at the techniques for skin preparation based on current recommendations and research – from clipping hair to the final application of antiseptic solution prior to draping. It will also cover which antiseptic solutions to use and when; what dilutions to use; and protocols you can easily adapt for use in your clinic.
