Wound care is a specialty for a reason. Correct etiology assignment, diagnostics, treatment, and documentation are essential pieces of knowledge in the successful management of wounds. While this video training will focus more specifically on documentation, the assessment and intervention are the key factors to accurately reflect in the historical notes made.
Kim Saunders, MSN/Ed, RN, CWON®, CFCN, will break down her practice tips as far as what you MUST start including in your charting. As you consider development of an initial plan of care for a newly identified wound or an evolving treatment plan to address a non-healing wound, there are considerations that need to be made clear in your written thought process.
Fascinating and complicated patient scenarios will be presented during this discussion. You will have the time to critically think through what went right… and what went wrong…in comprehensive wound care both documented and provided. Learn now how to avoid the mistakes that could lead you down a frightening path, confronting personal or professional litigation.
