Pressure Ulcers

One morning, during routine skin inspection (as taught by nursing), Mrs. L.V. noticed a small open area over the sacrum. Mrs. L.V.’s nurse and a wound care nurse clinician examined the area and graded the pressure ulcer using the Braden Scale as a stage 3 ulcer, full thickness loss. Mrs. L.V. was referred to the Wound Clinic for further management.
