Summary
"This book discusses pressure ulcer risk assessment (including use of the Braden Scale), the incidence and underlying causes of pressure ulcers, planning patient care, equipment for mitigating pressure on susceptible tissues, nutrition, and issues concerning dressings and treatment. It discusses prevention tools that can be used in acute care, long-term facilities, and the home. Evidence-based strategies address the benefits of creating a skin care team, how to create documentation that will facilitate higher reimbursement, and working with outpatients. Nurses studying for Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse certification will find support material regarding identifying, preventing, and resolving pressure ulcers not readily available elsewhere."
