Considerations

 If the wound is on the foot, bag it for showering;

if high risk foot, aseptic technique

 When considering solutions, need to weigh up

impact of bacteria on wound vs. use of antiseptics

 If the solution causes pain, re-evaluate choice

 Environment may impact on technique and solution
