A consultancy service that pays dividends. Setting up a pressure sore resource group


, : A consultancy service that pays dividends. Setting up a pressure sore resource group. Professional Nurse 9(4): 259-60, 264

1. The recognition that there may be a pressure sore problem in your hospital is important. 2. When starting a project, it is important to establish a baseline from which progress can be measured. 3. Better results will be achieved if the pressure sore problem is tackled by the multidisciplinary team. 4. It is important to realise that quality care costs money--the hospital may have to spend money in the first instance to provide a cost-effective service in the long run. 5. It is vital that medical and nursing staff are made aware of the cost-effectiveness of the wound care products they choose.
