Abstract

Introduction: Skin physiology of neonates and preterm infants and evidence-based skin care are not well explored for health care providers. Aim: The aim of our present study was to investigate the skin care methods of the tertiary Neonatal Intensive Care Units in Hungary. Method: A standardized questionnaire was distributed among the 22 tertiary Neonatal Intensive Care Units with questions regarding skin care methods, bathing, emollition, skin disinfection, umbilical cord care, treatment of diaper dermatitis, and use of adhesive tapes. Results: The skin care methods of the centres were similar in several aspects, but there were significant differences between the applied skin care and disinfectant products. Conclusions: The results of this survey facilitate the establishment of a standardized skin care protocol for tertiary Neonatal Intensive Care Units with the cooperation of dermatologists, neonatologists and pharmacists.
