To change an adult diaper, begin by thoroughly washing your hands with soap and warm water. Put on a pair of latex gloves for protection. If your loved one is not already lying down comfortably on their back, do so now for their comfort. In case your bed is height-adjustable, lower the entire bed to a comfortable level that is slightly lower than your hips.
When changing an adult diaper, it is critical to know the proper technique and to remain calm and considerate during the process. It is possible to change an adult diaper when the individual is laying down or while they are seated on the toilet seat.
Remove the diaper tabs from the patient while they are resting on their back.Using gentle pressure, turn the patient onto their side so that they are facing away from you.Instead of using their shoulders, arms, or legs, use their hips to guide them.Once they’re on their side, gently bend their legs towards their chest to relieve pressure.Pulling the diaper back while rolling it inwards is a good technique.
Unfasten the straps, Velcro, or adhesive tape of the adult diaper while the patient is lying down on his or her back. Tuck the side of the diaper that is furthest away from you under the person’s hip on the opposite side. Rolling the patient away from you onto his side should be accomplished with one hand on his hip and the other on his shoulder.
