Wound Care and Documentation Essentials Protect Yourself and Your Patient by Ann Kahl Taylor & Heidi Huddleston Cross
Does this sound familiar…
You enter a patient’s room for the first time, analyze their chart, but can’t quite understand the previous care provided. Or, maybe the care plan prescribed doesn’t match their risk assessment numbers.
Don’t worry, we are here to help.
Wound care in today’s healthcare environment is more challenging than ever— and let’s face it, terrifying. Lawsuits related to wounds are increasingly common in both acute and long-term care settings. In this course you’ll get many of the answers you need to help keep patients from suing, and keep lawyers and regulatory bodies at bay to keep you and your facility out of court.
After this course, you will have a wealth of assessment and treatment techniques to bring your skin and wound management skills to a new level! Most importantly, gain confidence and peace of mind that the treatment plan implemented will improve patient outcomes AND legally–defensible documentation to protect your clients and your license.
Providing the best patient care comes with risks. Avoid legal implications and gain expert-level wound management skills with this comprehensive, self-paced online course.
