Identify the sites where pressure damage might occur using appropriate assessment tools
In summary, a pressure ulcer can be deemed unavoidable when: All risk assessments and preventive care have been implemented and re-evaluated, [ yet a pressure ulcer still occurs; A life-threatening event may have occurred; A patient may have end-of-life skin changes; A patient with mental capacity may have refused preventive interventions; A patient may have been in a
collapsed state, unknown to health professionals.here are many risks associated with pressure ulcer development but, essentially, people with no impairment to sensation and mobility are unlikely to develop a pressure ulcer. However, this could oversimplify the risk as it implies that the only risk factors are reduced mobility and loss of sensation, which is not the case. ]

Identify individuals who may be at risk of impaired tissue viability and skin breakdown
Weegy: Pressure sores or decubitus ulcers are the result of a constant deficiency of blood to the tissues over a bony area such as a heel which may have been in contact with a bed or a splint over an extended period of time. [ The surface of the skin can ulcerate which may become infected. Eventually subcutaneous and deeper tisssues are damaged. Besides the heel, other areas commonly involved are the skin over the buttocks, sacrum, ankles hips and other bony sites of the body.
