Clinicians may have difficulty in determining if a wound is truly a pressure ulcer. It is essential to not only assess the wound, but also perform a complete skin assessment and obtain a history.
To be determined a pressure ulcer, the wound needs to meet the criteria by the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel, which is “a localized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as result of pressure, or pressure in combination with shear.” Friction is no longer included in the definition of pressure ulcer.
