An in-house-acquired or declining pressure ulcer puts providers at risk for regulatory citations and litigation. The burden on the provider is to demonstrate that the development or decline of a pressure ulcer was unavoidable. An effective care plan is based on identification of the individual risk factors and implementation of interventions that will help mitigate risk of pressure ulcer development. This course will provide a hands-on exercise to teach the participant to create a living, working care plan based on a risk assessment.

In Chapter One, we will discuss the F686 pressure ulcer regulation for long-term care. We will discuss how to prove the development or decline of a pressure injury was unavoidable. We will also discuss the importance of skin and risk assessments.
In Chapter Two, we will start breaking down the subsets of the Braden Scale to help develop the plan of care. We will discuss the risk factors and the correlating interventions for decreased activity, mobility, and sensory perception.
3. Moisture, Nutrition, Shear, and Friction
In Chapter Three, we will complete the subsets of the Braden Scale. We will discuss the risk factors and the correlating interventions for moisture, nutrition, shear, and friction.
4. Completing a Comprehensive Risk Assessment: Identifying Risk Factors Not Captured by the Braden Scale
While the Braden Scale does help predict if a resident is at risk for pressure injury development, it isn’t a comprehensive assessment. It only covers six potential risk factors. In Chapter Four, we will discuss other risk factors that should be considered and addressed.
5. Preparing a Skin Integrity Care Plan
Now that we have discussed potential risk factors and correlating interventions to consider, it is time to practice that knowledge. In Chapter Five, we will complete a case study to identify risk factors and build the plan of care.
