Improving clinical care for people with wounds

New All Wales Guidance on Pressure Ulcer Reporting and Investigation

Written by Michael Clark September 15th 2014

GUIDANCE IS BEING UPDATED _ PLEASE TREAT DOCUMENTS AS DRAFT.  New All Wales Guidance on Pressure Ulcer Reporting and Investigation was launched during the Opening of the Welsh Wound Innovation Centre last week.  In a seminar thirty people had the opportunity to discuss the new guidance into an age-old problem - how should Wales report pressure damage and what investigations should follow once damage occurs. The guidance was jointly developed by Patient Safeguarding and Tissue Viability staff in Wales.  

There are three documents avilable to download.  

The first provides the guidance document while there are two versions of the documentation for use in practice - one for older versions of Excel and another for more recent versions of the software program.
