Pressure Ulcer Care / Tissue Viability / Wound Care

Pressure ulcers are caused when an area of skin/and or the underlying tissues is damaged as a result of being placed under sufficient sustained pressure or distortion to impair its blood supply.

It is recognised that many pressure ulcers are preventable and when they do occur they can have a profound impact on the overall well-being of the person affected, being painful, debilitating and in some instances life-threatening.

The NHS has been mandated to adopt a zero tolerance to pressure ulcer development. To help achieve this, the ‘Stop the Pressure Campaign’ and aSSKINg bundle have been updated to help raise awareness about pressure ulcers and the 7 simple steps to prevent them.
