Skin care is a fundamentally important part of any patient’s visit here. We dress wounds with bandages or casts, apply creams or gels before certain tests and answer questions about everything from poison ivy to diaper rash.

We know that proper skin care is important for patient comfort, safety and healing. We study the way clinical procedures affect the skin. From this research, we develop evidence-based guidelines and outcome measurements for skin care in the medical environment.
