Manufactured to European Standards: BS EN 597-1 Cig, BS EN 597-2 Match and BS 7175 (Crib 5) Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This product will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement and action based planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. A range of assessment scales can be used as a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgement). Informal assessment is considered to be of greater importance and clinical value.
