Advanced Foot Care
Did you know that if you are receiving foot care services from a Registered Nurse, they should be following these required infection prevention and control practices when handling foot care instruments and supplies?
Registered nurses contribute to the maintenance and promotion of optimal health of Saskatchewan residents by providing advanced foot care. The need for advanced foot care in Saskatchewan is increasing due to chronic diseases, such as diabetes, which impacts lower limb health. New national requirements for Infection Prevention and Control exist for advanced foot care stating each client interaction requires a sterile set of foot care equipment/devices. Registered Nurses should be aware of these changes in practice expectations.
