This study describes the impact of an educational intervention that promotes effective communication of patient hygiene routines among interdisciplinary teams. Results showed that the intervention group was two times more likely to bathe in the bathroom than in a chair or bed. Findings suggest that OT plays an integral role in the education of interprofessional team members on bathing procedures, particularly for those with limited mobility and independence.
