According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, in 2004, 11% of nursing home residents had pressure ulcers (Stages I through IV). Skin assessment on patient admission to a nursing home, assisted living, or home care program is an essential component of a standardized admission procedure. Including photo documentation as a standard tool in admission skin assessments is an ideal way to baseline current patient status, track changes over time, and mitigate care giver liabilities.
