Review of facility's policy titled "Pressure Injury Prevention" showed early identification and prevention measures include if skin breakdown is identified, physician must be identified. Interdisciplinary plan of care for skin integrity to be implemented upon identification of skin integrity issues or if patient is identified as a high risk for skin breakdown. If skin breakdown is identified, decubitus ulcer patient education should be added to the patient's education within the discharge documentation that is provided to patient at discharge. The Braden scale is a reliable instrument used to assess a patient's risk of developing pressure injuries.

Review of the huddle showed 4 eyes (2 staff check the patient) method for skin assessment is to be performed as soon as possible following decision to admit to the facility. The pressure injury huddle follows the same principles as the policy above.
