A new online resource, AHRQ’s Safety Program for Nursing Homes: On-Time Pressure Ulcer Healing, will help nursing homes use electronic medical records to effectively monitor and manage residents’ pressure ulcers. The program uses the On-Time Pressure Ulcer Assessment system to provide a set of structured, standardized data elements for comprehensive documentation of pressure ulcer characteristics as well as treatments and interventions. The assessment tool guides clinicians in systematically assessing residents with pressure ulcers and thus helps less-experienced clinicians assess and care for these residents. The tool also serves experienced clinicians in their pressure ulcer management practice.
