1. Definition of a Pressure Injury and F686 Regulation

It is important to understand the definition of a pressure injury to ensure preventative measures are in place. Basic knowledge of the regulation is important to prevent a regulatory citation.

2. Risk Factors and Correlating Interventions

To prevent skin breakdown and pressure injuries, it is necessary to ensure interventions are put into place that correlate with the resident’s risk factors. While immobility is the highest risk factor for pressure injury development, it is important to understand that all risk factors need to be addressed.

3. Lower Extremity Ulcers and What to Report to the Nurse

While this session is focused on pressure injuries, more residents will develop lower extremity ulcers than pressure injuries. Understanding what to look for and what to report can help prevent or minimize some of these ulcers.
