Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I view the CD-ROM? 
Most computers have a CD-ROM drive. Press the button that is located near the CD-ROM drive to open the sliding door. Insert the CD-ROM in the drive and press the button again to close the door. The CD-ROM should start automatically. If the CD-ROM does not begin after one minute, follow these steps go to the ‘My Computer’ area of your computer, and click on the double-click on the drive for your CD-ROM player (usually the D drive). Production of the CD-ROM has been discontinued as of January 1, 2015.

Q: When viewing the CD-ROM, there is a large black border around the pictures and the picture is very small. Why does this happen and can I make the picture appear any larger?
A: We don't exactly understand why there is such a large border around the actual pictures, but it has something to do with the number of pixels that are required for showing videos. We do however know how to make the pictures somewhat larger and can share that with you. Go to the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the pop-up menu. Double-click on the "Display" icon. Choose the "Settings" tab on the display box that appears. Adjust the "Screen Resolution" downward towards the "less" end of the continuum so that you are using fewer pixels. Click "OK" and continue. Your picture should now occupy a larger area of your screen.  Production of the CD-ROM has been discontinued as of January 1, 2015.

Q: Are continuing education credits available? 
A: Continuing education credit is no longer available as of January 1, 2015.  Unfortunately, the School of Nursing at Oregon Health and Sciences University, which has provided the credit free of charge from 2002 through 2014, is unable to continue to offer credit.

Organizations with the ability to provide their own credit may use Bathing Without a Battle as part of training for CE credit without asking permission from Bathing Without a Battle. The Instructor's Guide can be used to simplify the CE application approval process.

Q: Is it true that someone be clean if they don’t have a traditional tub bath? 
 Yes, it is. It may be hard to believe, but there is evidence to show that many bathing techniques get people just as clean as a "traditional" soap and water tub bath. You may want to visit our section on bathing techniques to learn more.
