Pressure Area Nursing Care Plan



Ref: CP0156

Pressure Area Nursing Care Plan

Relief of pressure or position changes are key to pressure sore prevention. These changes need to be frequent, repositioning needs to avoid stress on the skin, and body positions need to minimize the risk of pressure on vulnerable areas.

Other strategies include skin care, regular skin inspections and good nutrition. As little as two hours of sustained pressure can trigger skin damage. Skin damage can also be exacerbated by friction and moisture. The surface damage is just the tip of the iceberg, the real damage lies beneath the surface of the skin.

The Care Plan sets out a clear explanation of the resident’s issue, and will guide the nurse or carer through the process of preparing a comprehensive, individual person centred Care Plan.
