Pressure Ulcer Prevention: PUP Tip #5

November 2012 Tip: PUP Digs Consistent Assignment  Consistent assignment of caregivers in nursing homes can help prevent pressure ulcers.  Inspecting residents’ skin regularly – checking for any changes – is vital in making sure skin stays intact and pressure ulcers do not develop.  Caregivers who are more familiar with residents are more likely to notice even subtle changes in the skin.  Consistent assignment paves the way toward this familiarity.  Click on the flyer here: PUP Tip 5.
