Pressure area care

Pressure ulcers can range from superficial damage involving little more than skin discolouration to deep ulcers that extend down to tendon and muscle or bone.
 
Pressure ulcers are an 'avoidable harm’, and their prevention is a key area of care in at risk patients. Pressure ulcer assessment and prevention is essential to ensure that patients receive safe, effective, harm-free care. Aligning an effective care bundle with the best possible evidence-based practice helps to safeguard patients by reducing the risk of avoidable occurrence.
