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. ]
