what are your instructions re showers in a PD patient. Our units in the past instructed pt to take a shower with the dresssing on & change it after the shower & the gauze in the dressing tends to get soaked.I think it is better to take the dressing off clean the area , dry it & put anew dressing post bath. Do you agree?
