very good information
This is an interesting article to know that oral care has such an effect on the increased risk of pneumonia.
good article. oral care is definitely the least thought about with nursing care
Informative. Education to staff oral hygiene is very important in the prevention of hospital acquired pneu. Looking close and providing mouth care makes us aware of our patients needs.(Sores, thrush, dehydration )
It’s an essential in our daily plan of care and preventative not only for pneumonia but also other health set back
Good article on the ABCs of oral care and it's importance though seemingly unimportant in the care of a patient
