to assess the knowledge regarding skin banking among nurses of selected hospital Indore

Background: Donor skin and dermal grafts are used in several types of loss of substance for different clinical purposes. As biological physiological medication, donor skin grafts can promote re-epithelization, shorten healing time, alleviate pain and protect dermal and subcutaneous structures such as cartilage, tendons, bones and nerves. Though a great variety of dermal matrices and skin equivalents, both synthetic and semisynthetic, are now available for wound treatment, viable human skin allografts remain an important therapeutic choice for extensive deep burns and hard-to-heal wounds. In such cases, viable skin allografts have significantly better clinical outcomes than unviable human-derived allografts or synthetic medications. The demand for human-derived skin bioproducts continues to be a reason for the existence of skin banks. Skin bank organization is complex and requires continuous updating. Careful donor selection, thorough microbiological and serological donor screening for transmissible diseases and rigorous quality control during tissue preparation are necessary to minimize the risk of transmission of pathogenic agents. Skin banks must also observe standardized reproducible procedures to ensure tissue traceability and biological safety in all phases of processing and to avoid new biological contamination. Constant training and periodic checks are needed to keep skin bank operators attentive and responsible. Finally, skin banks should guarantee collection and storage of highly viable skin. Here, we discuss available tissue storage methods and the different types of skin bioproducts. Aim: Assess the knowledge regarding skin banking among nurses of selected hospital Indore. Objectives: 1. to assess thea knowledge score regarding skin banking among staff nurses. 2. To find out the association between knowledge score with their selected socio-demographic variable .Methodology: The quantitative non-experimental descriptive research design was used to describe the knowledge of staff nurses regarding skin banking. Staff nurses were selected by convenience sampling technique and sample consists of 40 staff nurses. Semi structured knowledge questionnaire was used, consists of 30 items of knowledge questions regarding skin banking. The researcher obtained the validity and reliability of tool. The Semi Structured Knowledge questionnaire was administered to the staff Nurses. Descriptive and Inferential statistics were used to analyze the collected data in terms of Frequency analysis and chi-square test. Results: In the test majority 90% of staff nurses had average knowledge and 10% had poor knowledge. There was no association between the knowledge score with their selected demographic variables.
