Question and answer
Ways to protect an individual's privacy whilst managing continence
Avoid entering a room while other staff are carrying out intimate and personal care. [ If it is unavoidable, knock and wait. Ensure that items others may need to access are not stored in rooms where intimate and personal care is provided. Consider developing a system that prevents other service users and staff from entering a room while intimate and personal care is being carried out, such as catches that stop doors from being pushed open easily but can be opened in an emergency. Make time when intimate issues, such as continence care, can be discussed with other staff in private. A good
example would be at staff handover, which could be held in an office. If you must discuss these issues within the earshot of others, be sensitive about language used, and your tone and volume of voice. Avoid drawing attention to a person’s incontinence, and refrain from speaking about it unnecessarily or in front of people who do not need to know. Enable service users to wear clothing that is easy to take off and put on, and therefore promotes their independence. ]
