Skilled nursing providers are feeling the pressure when it comes to managing the skin and wound care of residents. A majority of care providers don’t have a dedicated nurse to measure wounds the same way each time, at regular intervals. This often causes variations in the tracking and measurement of wounds, making it difficult to determine if the wound is actually healing.
To create a greater experience for both staff and residents, providers are turning to technology as a means of establishing a better workflow and method to easily track wounds. Learn more about the pains of skin and wound care, check out the infographic below:
