Post Hip Replacement - Bathing Print

POST HIP REPLACEMENT BATHING TECHNIQUES


Purpose:  
To allow patients in observing proper hip precautions during bathing after hip arthroplasty

Instructions:
(gray/shaded area = involved side)

1.  After a hip replacement, it is best to bathe while seated on a tub bench for safety reasons.  Use a long handled sponge to reach the lower leg and the foot, in order to avoid bending at the hip.  Remember to always maintain a 90-degree angle (or greater) between your torso and your thigh.
2.  Move the spongehead over to wash the outside of the leg and foot, while keeping the knees apart.
3.  Bring the sponge head to wash the inside of the lower leg and the underside of the foot, while keeping knees apart.
   
Target Response:  
At the end of activity, the patient will bathe lower extremities completely without feeling strain/pain on the operated hip.

Precautions/ Special notes:
Ensure pain-free movements as possible. For a full review of the hip precautions, please refer to the hip do’s and don’ts handouts.  Additionally, please refer to handouts on Post Hip replacement tub transfer for instructions on how to safely transfer into and out of the tub.  Always have someone supervise a patient who has not achieved mastery of the process.
