Changing Bandages: Learning about MRSA

1. Wash and dry your hands well.

2. Put on disposable gloves.


Remove the old bandage.

4. Put the old bandage in a plastic bag. Take off the gloves and put them in the plastic bag too.

5. Wash and dry your hands well.


Put on a new, clean pair of gloves.


Apply the new bandage. If you have a leaking sore, put on extra dressings to keep the drainage from leaking though.

8. Take off the gloves and put them in the plastic bag. Seal or tie the bag and throw it away in the regular trash.

9. Clean your hands with soap and water and dry well.
