Abstract

Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) results from frequent exposure to urine or feces. Consistent preventive skin care or treatment may reduce the incidence of IAD. The authors propose using an IAD classification and intervention tool (IADIT) to make detecting and treating IAD easier and more consistent.
