Water the Forgotten Nutrient at Gildawood Court

A poster created by Care Supervisor Clare Hewitt at Gildawood Court is being displayed by nearby George Eliot Hospital in Nuneaton.

As part of her role, Clare attends a quarterly meeting on continence and tissue viability with nurses at the hospital.

She was asked to devise a poster about the importance of water for tissue and designed ‘The forgotten nutrient’ which depicts how vital this liquid is to pressure area care.

Pressure ulcers tend to affect people with health conditions that make it difficult to move, and can develop when a large amount of pressure is applied to an area of skin over a short period of time. They can also occur when less pressure is applied over a longer period of time.

Jo Madejowska, Care Home Manager is very proud of her care team at Gildawood and commented:

“We build our care team at Gildawood to ensure they are able to provide person centred care and spend valuable time with our residents. To be able to recognise the valuable contribution a member of our team is great and a visible sign of our ongoing aim to continually develop and improve all of our team’s skills. Well done Clare, what a fantastic achievement.”
