Blisters Abound

I have never seen so many cases of blistered areas on one population in my life as I have been dealing with on my floor. Can they be from wetness ( ie. overheated skin areas?) I mean its AZ and its hot and of course the elderly think its cold when their bodies are still sweating.

It just seems like its some infectious nosocomial thing or something. But all these freaking skin issues are really increasing the amount of treatments and dressing changes that need to be done each shift. I swear out of the 26 people I have every night, 20 of them require a bid dressing change as well.
