Question and answer
explain when an initial tissue viability risk assessment may be required?
It is important when a person enters a new care setting that an assessment of their pressure ulcer risk is carried out. This assessment should take place as soon as possible, as pressure ulcers can develop quickly. [ It is also important to remember that a person s condition can change which may mean a change in their pressure ulcer risk. It is good practice to re-assess a person s risk of
developing a pressure ulcer when there is a change in their condition. In order to identify quickly a change in a person s pressure ulcer risk, undertake an assessment of pressure ulcer risk on a daily basis. When a person is identified to be at risk of developing a pressure ulcer, communicate this to staff through shift handovers, safety briefings and through the use of at risk? cards and visual cues. For more information on risk assessment see the pressure ulcer prevention change package. ]
