Post-operative woundcare. Hospital nurses caring for a teenage girl who is recovering from spinal surgery. The nurse at left is washing her hands. She will then put on sterile gloves to prevent infection, and remove the dressings to check and clean the surgical wounds. An anaesthetic will be given through a mask to relieve the pain during this procedure. Photographed in the Orthopaedic Surgery Nursing Ward at the Robert Debre Hospital, Paris, France.
