Pressure Sore Management Policy and Procedure
This policy details how the service will support individuals who are at risk of, or present with, pressure ulcers. It defines the roles and responsibilities of staff as well as detailing the clinical governance framework for reducing risk. The policy has been reviewed with changes made to the ‘Procedure’ section (specifically 5.3 and 5.7) to reflect the NHS Improvement standards relating to definitions. The term ‘grade’ has been removed and replaced with ‘category’ across the ‘Procedure’ section.
