Beth Alford, RN, BSN

Pressure injuries and their accompanying documentation are often among the most frequently cited survey deficiencies. Documentation that’s lacking or missing can result in citations under F686, or even lawsuits. In addition, since wound care is the subject of continual research, keeping current on best practices is vital.

During this 60-minute program, risk management specialist Beth Alford, RN, BSN, will identify the steps that most facilities get wrong when it comes to documenting pressure injuries. Alford will guide participants through key areas of documenting, assessing, treating, and preventing pressure injuries to ensure staff are providing quality and compliant care. Join Alford at the end of the webinar for a live Q&A session and get your most pressing questions answered!

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
