Pressure Ulcers & Other Wounds CPG

Newly updated, the Pressure Ulcers and Other Wounds CPG now includes information regarding arterial and venous ulcers, in addition to pressure ulcers, as well as the new NPUAP staging terminology. Pressure ulcers and other wounds remain a major cause of mortality and morbidity in PA/LTC, affecting an estimated 2.5 million patients and costing $9.1 to $11.6 billion per year in the US. Adapted from the Society’s Pressure Ulcer CPG, the new CPG aims to facilitate the decline of new facility-acquired pressure ulcers and other wounds through proper prevention methods. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services MDS terminology (pressure ulcer) and National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) terminology (pressure injury) included. This CPG is a valuable tool for all PA/LTC health care providers.

The guideline is evidence-based and incorporates the revised federal guidance to surveyors on pressure ulcers (Tag F314) including:

  • Risk factors;
  • Infection;
  • Pain management;
  • Treatments based on the wound characteristics; and
  • The resident’s rights to refuse one or more aspects of pressure ulcer care.
