BACKGROUND: There is a lack of literature describing the changes in daily routine that parents caring for a child in a body cast must experience. The investigator's clinical experience suggested that determining these changes in parental daily routine would inform nurses of appropriate interventions for these parents.
The use of the Goretex liner in our series resulted in a savings of $38 per cast including the cost of the liners ($75). The Goretex Pantaloon cast liner used for children's spica casts prevents urine excoriation of the skin and is cost effective.
