Abstract

Documentation of pressure ulcers requires accuracy and thorough information in order for providers to prescribe treatment. Frequently, documentation among providers is inconsistent and can lead to a delay in proper treatment of the ulcer. Photography, used as an adjunct in documentation, can alleviate the inconsistencies and improve the care of pressure ulcers.
