This presentation includes a detailed review of the Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses Society (WOCN) Guidance on Integumentary items. Ensure that your clinicians are able to answer these questions with 100% accuracy:
-When is a re-epithelialized wound still considered a "current" wound?
-What does granulation tissue really look like?
-Can avascular tissue be present on a Stage 2 pressure ulcer?
-How is "most problematic" defined in OASIS?
-What impact do these three OASIS items have on case mix and outcome measurement?
Precision in assessing, documentation, and coding is critical to providing the appropriate level of services for healing to occur for your patients.
