  • Alex Seddon United Kingdom Bathing a patient is a major key element in producing a bond between nurse and patient encouraging trust and openness. As well as this the observations can assess the patient eg. verbal retaliation/ non-verbal actions. On a physical level bathing prevents the spread of bacteria due to perspiration and inactivity and ensures the skin is bacteria-free as well as contributing to the mental well-being and comfort of the patient.
