About this work

Description

This film clearly demonstrates the necessary facilities to ensure a steady service of sterile instruments and dressings. A diagram demonstrates the courses of self-and cross-infections. This part deals with treatment of relatively small wounds where the risk of airborne infection is not very great, the emphasis being placed on the risk of contact infections which can be prevented by a good aseptic dressing technique. This is first demonstrated by showing the technique for one nurse in a factory surgery, followed by the technique adopted by a team of nurses in the Birmingham Accident Hospital dressing out-patients' station. A model is used to show the general layout of the dressing station. The film, beginning with the out-patients' waiting room, follows the patient through the whole sequence of events passing throughe patient passes through the inspection room and one if the dressing rooms for treatment, every stage from the removal of the bandages, the no-touch technique for the removal of the inner dressings, disposal of soiled material and the doctor's inspection of the wound and method of prescribing treatment in the inspection room. The patient is then followed stage by stage. In each case the necessary facilities to ensure a steady service of sterile instruments and dressings and the cleaning and sterilising of used instruments are clearly demonstrated together with the functions of each member of the team.
