What nursing care does puerperal sepsis require?

After delivery and especially in the event of puerperal infection, it is very important to wash and disinfect the episiotomy or cesarean section wound, as the case may be. Soap should not be applied directly to this area. It is best to use a solution of pharmaceutical disinfectant and pour it over the area. The wound should then be dried with a clean cloth and covered with a new sterile dressing.
