Value Simulator

Try out this simulator using your own values to see how TENA Solutions for Long Term Care Homes will allow you deliver better care and lower your costs.

In a typical nursing home environment, incontinence products account for about 1% of the overall yearly budget. [1] However, continence care and dealing with the consequences of incontinence could be up to 10% of that same budget. [2] Causes of consequence costs include inappropriate product selection and routines that result in too many product changes and waste.

Selection of the wrong products also leads to skin irritation and leakages – with additional laundry of wet sheets and clothes. Incontinence-related work can also be stressful and cause sick leave and high staff turnover.
