- Purpose: This study sought to verify the effectiveness of the Nurse Hand Cream developed to protect the skin of the hands of nurses damaged by frequent hand hygiene. Methods: A randomized controlled trial was conducted that compared the hand skin moisture content of subjects using the Nurse Hand Cream that had been developed for nurses with that of the other hand cream. Results: After applying the hand cream, the subjects skin moisture content were measured using a skin moisture measuring device; the moisture content of the experimental group significantly increased compared with the control group (p<.001). In particular, as a result of the second experiment that involved the four-time performance of hand hygiene every 30 minutes for two hours, the skin moisture content of the experimental group significantly increased compared with the control group, and 84.4% of the experimental group maintained a normal or higher skin moisture content. Conclusion: The hand cream for nurses was statistically confirmed to strengthen the moisturizing power and prevention of skin moisture loss compared with the other hand cream.
