Learning at work week - Safe use of emollients
This #learningatworkweek we are reminding healthcare professionals of the fire risk associated with the use of emollient skin creams and how to support your patients to promote the safe use of emollients.
Fabric and clothing with dried on emollient skin creams becomes flammable.
Avoid exposure to naked flames and other potential ignition sources, including smoking.
