Question and answer
Q: agreed ways of working relating to pressure care
A: Agreed ways of working includes policies and procedures where these exist. Usually, people can relieve the effects of pressure, friction or shearing, by moving around, changing position and adjusting clothing and bedding. [ If you are unable to do this, you may be at increased risk of developing pressure ulcers. You may be at risk of developing pressure ulcers for a number of reasons,
including: ? Problems with movement Your ability to move may be limited or you may be unable to move. This may be due to a variety of causes, for example, a spinal cord injury, old age, very young age, a longterm illness such as osteoarthritis, a sudden event or condition such as being unconscious or during an operation. ? Problems with sensitivity to pain or discomfort Some conditions (for example diabetes, stroke) and some treatments (eg epidural pain relief ) may reduce your sensitivity to pain or discomfort so that you are not aware of the need to move. ? Poor circulation Poor circulation caused, for example, by vascular disease or heavy smoking, may increase your risk of pressure ulcers. ? Moist skin You may be at increased risk if damp skin caused, for example, by incontinence, sweat, or a weeping wound, is not kept clean and dry. ? Pressure ulcers in the past Scar tissue from a previous pressure ulcer is weaker and more prone to further damage. ? Inadequate diet or fluid intake Poor diet may cause you to be malnourished. Lack of fluid intake may lead to dehydration. Losing too much weight can lead to loss of padding over bony points. ]
