Let's talk about some important key notes in regard to denture care. Now we need to
make sure as healthcare providers not to drop the dentures in the sink or on the floor.
This could chip them and they could really costly to our client. Now, when we're talking
about dentures in a patient's room, we usually have denture cups on the floor and we really
want to make sure we use these for our client. It's also a good idea to label it because we
can use this cup for a couple of things. We can store it there and also soak it overnight,
but it gives a designated place for the dentures to stay so we don't lose those. And again,
like we had talked about, make sure you label them with the client's name and a sticker.
Alright, so really important and this happens a lot. I don't know if you remember as a kid
and you had a retainer and you stuck it on your food tray and then tossed your lunch and
then you had to go dig into the trash? This is what we do not want to do in the hospital with
very costly dentures of our patient. So, always check our patient's food tray before you
remove it from the room.
