Pressure Ulcer Algorithms for Patients & Staff
On the occasion of the STOP PRESSURE ULCER DAY, EPUAP put together 2 algorithms that can be used as basic guidelines to follow when preventing/treating pressure ulcers.
- Algorithm for Professionals
- Algorithm for Patients
They can be handed out in hospitals and other healthcare institutions not only to health care workers, but also to patients themselves. We hope this will help raise awareness even more and will prevent the formation of pressure ulcers/injuries.
