On-Time Pressure Ulcer Healing Project
This report provides the clinician with a comprehensive list of residents with existing pressure ulcers receiving weekly wound assessments and ulcer care. Clinicians can use the report as a tool to track and manage resident pressure ulcer care. The report provides ulcer-specific information, such as ulcer location, size, and ulcer duration in days. It also includes other relevant clinical information, such as nutritional supplement use, weight loss, and total number of resident risk factors. Also, clinicians can compare ulcer progress to available benchmark data for similar ulcers.
