When we eat our food it is broken down into nutrients then absorbed into the bloodstream, our body then discards the indigestible parts of the food, this process is called digestion. The oesophagus is a tube that passes through the chest and connects the mouth to the stomach. The stomach leads to the small intestine, which is a narrow long tube from which most of the food absorption into the bloodstream takes place. The reason why we need to digest our food is because we need various molecules from the food we eat. We need carbohydrates for energy; we need amino acids to build protein.

So as a precaution to prevent infection being spread from the bacteria on the hand they often wash their hands regularly with anti-bacterial hand wash.

Some individuals being supported may need to be sensitively reminded about hygiene, it is good practice to explain the reasons for maintaining good hygiene levels, whilst respecting people's differences and attitudes to taking care of themselves. 2.2 Protective equipment, clothing and precautions should be followed at all times when working to minimise the risk of infection. Uniforms should be clean on each day and washed separately from other laundry. Gloves, aprons and good hand washing techniques should be used when providing personal care for individuals as germs can spread very easily in care home settings. 2.3 Concerns about the safety and hygiene of equipment or facilities used for personal care should be reported to your line manager or house manager immediately.
For this reason it is important that staff ensure equipment is in good working order, safe and clean. Staff can do this by checking equipment regularly, being observant and not putting anyone at risk of danger or harm. It is also important equipment is tested and confirmed to be safe. Equipment should be checked before each use and if appears to be dangerous should be taken out of use and reported and recorded according to your local policy. Example of dangerous equipment may be a sharp edge on the bath seat as this may cause skin tears.
By maintaining a sterile environment the risk for cross spread of diseases is limited. Hand hygiene should be maintained by staff to minimise micro-organisms infecting the wound. The patient should also maintain their hand hygiene to reduce the spread of micro-organism from the gastrointestinal track. Client education can reduce further complications by awareness into healing impairments such as smoking and poor diet choices. Certain nutrients are needed in the healing process such as vitamin c, zinc and protein.
A nursing mom may find herself changing fewer wet diapers or diapers that aren't as wet as expected. The infant may have a swollen belly. The doctor may detect the abnormal pylorus, which feels like an olive-shaped mass, when touching the stomach area. Visible peristaltic waves are noticeable, wave-like contractions that move across the baby's upper abdomen (peristalsis) soon after feeding but before vomiting. This is caused by stomach muscles trying to force food past the outlet of the pylorus.
