4 Objectives Verbalize the intent of F-314. Discuss wound bed preparation for pressure ulcer treatmentDescribe treatment interventions for pressure ulcers that meet the standards of care and/or best practices criteriaRecognize staff education needs related to pressure ulcers
5 What is the F314?A guide to ensure that all nursing homes are held to the same standards in the survey process regarding pressure ulcer prevention and treatmentMedicare wants providers (LTC) to be aware of the current standards and PrU prevention and careUse it to create an effective Wound Care and Risk Management programSurveyors use it to assess a facility’s risk assessment and wound care protocols and proceduresAn outline for best Wound Care practiceIt should be used as a toolF314 guideline’s purpose is to ensure that everyone is held to the same standards and to motivate everyone to decrease their prevalence of PrU.F-314 is for pressure ulcers onlyF-309 addresses the other most frequent types of wounds - arterial, venous, neuropathic, surgicalThe F314 should be viewed as a tool to assist in developing a solid wound care program. Its contents can be a useful guide for acute care as well.It is not something to fear and scramble with when the survey window starts to approach.By adherence to the F314 skin tag, a facility can develop a program that is not only compliant with the guidelines, but one that best addresses community acquired pressure ulcers (PrUs) and heals them, reduces facility acquired PrUs to only those that were unavoidable, and a program that ensures caregivers are competent to deliver the care appropriately and effectively.Use the F-314 & F-309 regulations as a tool to guide your facility's wound prevention and care program.5AMT5
6 F314 Interpretative Guidelines Topics covered in the F314OVERVIEWPREVENTIONASSESSMENTSubsections include:Risk FactorsPressure Points and Tissue ToleranceUnder-Nutrition and Hydration DeficitsMoisture and Its ImpactINTERVENTIONSMONITORING-They cover Prevention and Assessment in addition to what we will focus on treatment interventions…however, it is not within the scope of this program to teach you “HOW” to do the different types of treatment.-That would require much more time and frankly onsite education to do hands-on skills in a return demonstration formatWith that said: Let me reiterate that each facility needs to have a copy of the F-314 and F-309 guidelines and the associated tags in a wound prevention and care binder.Go onto the CMS web site and download a copy of these regulations.-Put this document into a binder that becomes part of the orientation process, AND use it to provide inservices for all levels of staff.6AMT6
7 CMS: Avoidable Pressure Ulcers Resident developed a pressure ulcer and the facility DID NOT DO one or more of the following:Evaluate the resident’s clinical condition and pressure ulcer risk factorsDefine and implement interventions that are consistent with resident needs, goals, and recognized standards of practiceMonitor and evaluate the impact of the interventionsRevise the interventions if appropriate-Let’s review CMS’s definitions of Avoidable and Unavoidable PrUs.-An Avoidable PrUs…according to F-314…is given as a citation when the Resident developed a pressure ulcer and the facility DID NOT DO one or more of the following:-Evaluate the resident’s clinical condition and pressure ulcer risk factors-Define and implement consistently the interventions that are consistent with resident needs, goals, and recognized standards of practice-Monitor and evaluate the impact of the interventions-Revise the interventions if appropriate7
8 CMS: Unavoidable Pressure Ulcers Resident developed a pressure ulcer even though the facility:Evaluated the resident’s clinical condition and risk factorsDefined and implemented interventions that are consistent with resident needs, goals, and recognized standards of practiceMonitored and evaluated the impact of the interventionsRevised interventions as appropriateUnavoidable PrUs on the other hand is when the resident developed a PrU even thought the facility:-Evaluated the resident’s clinical condition and risk factors-Defined and implemented interventions that are consistent with resident needs, goals, and recognized standards of practice-Monitored and evaluated the impact of the interventions-Revised interventions as appropriate-Perhaps the residents is in the latter stages of life…on hospice…have great pain when being turned…and the family and resident have requested you cease and desist with the turning schedule…you explain that with all the other risk factors…nutrition challenges…multi organ failure…etc…that not turning will put the resident as even higher risk for PrU formation…that is acceptable…but you must document it appropriately.You must show…unequivocally…through your documentation and interdisciplinary communications…that you did everything correctly8
9 Physical Factors that May Influence Pressure Ulcer Treatment Choices LocationStatus of ulcer bedSize, stage, depthExudateNecrotic tissuePresence or absence of granulation tissue or epithelializationPainPeriwound conditionErythema, edema, indurationMacerationDryness or fragilityShearing, friction or bothAccording to AMDA this is a list of Physical Factors the May Influence Pressure Ulcer Treatment Choices-Location-Status of ulcer bed-Size, stage, depth-Exudate-Necrotic tissue-Presence or absence of granulation tissue or epithelialization-Pain-Periwound condition-Erythema, edema, induration-Maceration-Dryness or fragility-Shearing, friction or bothAll of which must be assessed and taken into consideration as you prepare your POC for treatment of the resident’s wound/s.-BTW…This AMDA document is one that you MUST have in your library for pressure ulcer prevention and care. Loan or give one as a present to your Medical Director if they don’t already have one. Review some of the content with them.Pressure Ulcers in the Long-Term Care Setting; Clinical Practice Guideline; AMDA 2008
10 F309: § Quality of CareEach resident must receive and the facility must provide the necessary care and services to attain or maintain the highest practicle physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, in accordance with the comprehensive assessment and plan of care.Under this guideline are the definitions for specific wound etiologies other than PrUsArterialDiabetic neuropathic ulcerVenous insufficiency ulcer§ of F-314 Relates to Quality of Care and states:-Each resident must receive and the facility must provide the necessary care and services to attain or maintain the highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being, in accordance with the comprehensive assessment and plan of care.-Under this guideline are the definitions for specific wound etiologies other than PrUsArterialDiabetic neuropathic ulcerVenous insufficiency ulcer-You will want to review these definitions in the F-314 guidelines.
11 F314 - INTERVENTIONSComprehensive assessment should provide the basis for defining approaches to address residents at risk of developing or already having a pressure ulcerA determination that a resident is at high risk to develop a pressure ulcer has significant implications for preventive and treatment strategies, but does not by itself indicate that development of a pressure ulcer was unavoidable.Effective prevention and treatment are based upon consistently providing routine and individualized interventions.According the F-314 Regulations the comprehensive assessment should provide the basis for defining approaches (treatment interventions) to address residents at risk of developing or of already having a pressure ulcerF-314 discusses that having determined a resident is at high risk to develop a pressure ulcer has significant implications for preventive and treatment strategiesBut does not by itself indicate that development of a pressure ulcer was unavoidable.F-314 goes on to stress that effective prevention and treatment are based upon consistently providing routine and individualized interventions.CMS Manual System Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Pub State Operations Provider Certification Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); Transmittal 5 Date: November 19, 2004
12 F314 Interpretative Guidelines 483.25(c) Based upon the assessment and the resident’s clinical condition, choices and identified needs, basic or routine care should include interventions to:a) Redistribute pressure (such as repositioning, protecting heels, etc)b) Minimize exposure to moisture and keep skin clean, especially of fecal contamination;c) Provide appropriate pressure redistributing, support surfaces;d) Provide non-irritating surfaces;e) Maintain or improve nutrition and hydration status, where feasible.-In the F-314 Interpretative Guidelines paragraph (c) states:-Based upon the assessment and the resident’s clinical condition, choices and identified needs, basic or routine care should include interventions to:a) Redistribute pressure (such as repositioning, protecting heels, etc)b) Minimize exposure to moisture and keep skin clean, especially of fecal contamination (Makelbust: residents with fecal incont are 22 x more likely to develop a PrU); mention the IADIT tool and request a copy atc) Provide appropriate, pressure redistributing, support surfaces;d) Provide non-irritating surfaces;e) Maintain or improve nutrition and hydration status, where feasible.CMS Manual System Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Pub State Operations Provider Certification Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); Transmittal 5 Date: November 19, 200412AMT12
13 F314 Interpretative Guidelines 483.25(c) The facility should be aware that the resident's drug regimen may worsen risk factors for development of pressure ulcers or for non-healing pressure ulcersFor example, drugs causing lethargy or anorexia or creating/increasing confusion should be identified and addressed-In addition, the facility should be aware that the resident's drug regimen may worsen risk factors for development of pressure ulcers or for non-healing pressure ulcers (for example, by causing lethargy or anorexia or creating/increasing confusion or residents on steroids with chronic wounds…steroids stop the inflammatory phase of wound healing and cause profound insulin resistance causing the residents blood glucose to elevate…which also contributes to non-healing wounds…)-and that these impediments to healing should be identified and addressed.-The interventions mentioned on the previous slide should be incorporated into the plan of care and revised as the condition of the resident indicates.CMS Manual System Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Pub State Operations Provider Certification Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); Transmittal 5 Date: November 19, 2004
14 F314 & Repositioning Repositioning is a common, effective intervention Repositioning is critical for a resident who is immobile or dependent upon staff for repositioningAssessment of a resident’s skin integrity after pressure has been reduced or redistributed should guide the development and implementation of repositioning plansSuch plans should be addressed in the comprehensive plan of care consistent with the resident’s need and goals.The care plan for a resident at risk of friction or shearing during repositioning may require the use of lifting devices for repositioningPositioning the resident on an existing pressure ulcer should be avoided since it puts additional pressure on tissue that is already compromised and may impede healing-F-314 discusses Repositioning as a common, effective intervention for an individual with a pressure ulcer or who is at risk of developing one.-Assessment of a resident’s skin integrity after pressure has been reduced or redistributed should guide the development and implementation of repositioning plans. (tissue tolerance- part of ongoing assessment)-Such plans should be addressed in the comprehensive plan of care consistent with the resident’s need and goals.-Repositioning is critical for a resident who is immobile or dependent upon staff for repositioning.-The care plan for a resident at risk of friction or shearing during repositioning may require the use of lifting devices for repositioning.-In addition, “Positioning the resident on an existing pressure ulcer should be avoided since it puts additional pressure on tissue that is already compromised and may impede healing.”CMS has defined very specific details for surveyors to consider regarding the intervention of repositioning. It would be in the best interest of your residents and staff if you were to develop an inservice that would address repositioning, support surface interventions, and give this inservice to new employees, require the inservice to be given to staff who is observed transferring and positioning residents incorrectly and as a quarterly refresher.-Please refer to CMS Manual that the surveyors use which is listed again…at the bottom of this slide.CMS Manual System Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Pub State Operations Provider Certification Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); Transmittal 5 Date: November 19, 2004
15 F314 & Support Surfaces and Pressure Redistribution Support surfaces should be chosen by matching a device’s potential therapeutic benefit with the resident’s specific situationMultiple ulcersLimited turning surfacesAbility to maintain positionEffectiveness of pressure redistribution devices is based on their potential to addressIndividual resident’s riskResident’s response to the productThe characteristics and condition of the productExamples of these surfaces or devices include:4-inch convoluted foam padsGel padsAir fluidized bedsLow loss air mattresses-CMS had defined some of the types of support surfaces or devices that may benefit residents with or at risk for PrUs-The guideline states that “Appropriate support surfaces or devices should be chosen by matching a device’s potential therapeutic benefit with the resident’s specific situation; for example, multiple ulcers, limited turning surfaces, ability…or inability to maintain position should be taken into consideration.-The effectiveness of pressure redistribution devices (e.g., 4-inch convoluted foam pads, gels, air fluidized mattresses, and low loss air mattresses) is based on their potential to address the individual resident’s risk, the resident’s response to the product, and the characteristics and condition of the product.-Pressure redistribution refers to the function or ability to distribute a load over a surface or contact area.-Redistribution results in shifting pressure from one area to another and requires attention to all affected areas.-Pressure redistribution has incorporated the concepts of both pressure reduction (reduction of interface pressure, not necessarily below capillary closure pressure) and pressure relief (reduction of interface pressure below capillary closure pressure).-Examples of these surfaces or devices include:4-inch convoluted foam pads, --Gel pads.--Air fluidized beds,--Low loss air mattresses
16 F314 - MONITORINGAt least daily, staff should remain alert to potential changes in the skin condition and should evaluate and document identified changesFor example, a resident’s complaint about pain or burning/itching at a site where there has been pressure or a nursing assistant’s observation during the resident’s bath that there is a change in skin condition should be reported so that the resident may be evaluated furtherF-314 discusses Monitoring the resident’s skin and states:-At least daily, staff should remain alert to potential changes in the skin condition and should evaluate and document identified changes.-For example, a resident’s complaint about pain or burning/itching at a site where there has been pressure or a nursing assistant’s observation during the resident’s bath that there is a change in skin condition should be reported so that the resident may be evaluated further.This is where you will rely heavily on your well-trained and constantly vigilant nursing assistants. IN most LTC facilities like the hospital and home care settings, the CNA sees the resident’s skin more frequently than the nurse and should report to nursing any suspected or easily discernable changes in skin conditions. Implement easy ways for them to document and report ANY skin change(s) regardless of how minor it may seem….. You may want to keep an index card where you record the CNA’s name that reported the skin changes and at the end of the week or month – give a little reward for their diligence in reporting changes. Positive reinforcement “warm fuzzies” go a long way. DO something equally creative for the nurses – track the units progress and reward the nurses for instituting mid coarse changes that improve heal times or progression.I like to refer to the CNAs as the Lifeguards in LTC- empower them and recognize the value they bring to your facility.
17 ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF PRESSURE ULCER(S) It is important that each existing pressure ulcer be identifiedWhether present on admission or developed after admissionFactors that influenced the PrU developmentPotential for development of additional ulcersFactors causing deterioration of the pressure ulcer(s) be assessed and addressed (Prevention!!!)Any new pressure ulcer suggests a need to reevaluate the adequacy of the plan for preventing pressure ulcers-It is important that each existing pressure ulcer be identified, whether present on admission or developed after admission-And that factors that influenced the PrUs development, AND the potential for development of additional ulcers… or…for the deterioration of the current pressure ulcer(s) be recognized, assessed and addressed (see discussion under Prevention regarding overall assessment and interventions).-Any new pressure ulcer suggests a need to reevaluate the adequacy of the plan for preventing pressure ulcers.
18 F314 - TYPES OF ULCERSAt the time of the assessment, clinicians should document the clinical basis for any determination that an ulcer is not pressure related, especially if the injury/ulcer has characteristics consistent with a pressure ulcer, but is determined not to be oneAccording to CMS clinician means:PhysiciansAdvance practice nursesPhysician assistantsCertified wound care specialistsRefer back to F-309 for CMS description of the most frequently encountered types of wound other than PrUs…they are asking for the etiology of the wound/s (arterial, venous, diabetic neuropathic)Also provide the:LocationShapeUlcer edges and wound bedCondition of surrounding tissuesAll of which factor into your treatment planThis is an important concept related to wounds in your facility.The surveyor will want to ensure that you have appropriately evaluated and assessed your resident and the wound…and that you have a correct diagnosis on the etiology of the wound.So…with this in mind the F-314 guideline states:-”At the time of the assessment, clinicians should document the clinical basis for any determination that an ulcer is not pressure related, especially if the injury/ulcer has characteristics consistent with a pressure ulcer, but is determined not to be one.-According to CMS clinician means:Physicians, Advance practice nurses, Physician assistants, Certified wound care specialistsPlease refer back to F-309 for CMS description of the most frequently encountered types of wound other than PrUs…CMS is asking for the correct etiology of the wound/sIs it Arterial, Venous, diabetic neuropathic (remember, unless you are an MD or APN, you can SUGGEST a clinical working diagnosis or better yet, describe the wounds’ characteristics to enable the MD/APN to do the actual diagnosis)AND…how do you know this…did you do an ABI to assess objectively blood flow to the lower extremity if you suspect an arterial wound on the foot…How did you describe the venous wound…did it have the characteristic hemosideran deposits…that red/brown staining in Caucasian and Hispanic skin or more purplish or even black staining on dark African American skin.When you called the wound diabetic…is it in the correct place for a diabetic neuropathic wound…BTW…these wound only and I repeat only occur on the plantar surface of the foot in an ambulatory resident. Just because a resident had diabetes does not make any wound on the body a diabetic neuropathic wound.- CMS is also looking for documentation of the;Location, Shape, Ulcer edges and wound bed, Condition of surrounding tissues-All of which factor into your treatment plan- Ultimately the quality of your documentation will determine how well you do under survey and for clearing spelling out caring for the resident
19 F314- DRESSINGS AND TREATMENTS A facility should be able to show that its treatment protocols are based upon current standards of practiceAre in accord with the facility’s policies and proceduresAnd these policies and procedures are developed with the medical director’s review and approval-F-314 discusses that the dressing and treatment protocols you use should be based upon current standards of practice…-And that these treatment interventions are in accordance with the facility’s policies and procedures.-And last…but NOT LEAST that these policies and procedures are developed with the medical director’s review and approval.-You MUST and I repeat MUST get your medical director involved in the wound prevention and treatment protocol, policy and procedure process.-It is not just to protect the facility but to protect your medical director…medical directors are getting cited due to inadequate involvement and recognition of issues related to substandard care for residents with wounds…-Help your medical director by giving him or her a copy of the CMS guidelines related to wounds (F-314 & F309 and the related potential tags we discussed during the last few presentations-And give them a copy of the AMDA Pressure Ulcer in the Long-Term Care Setting, Clinical Practice Guidelines.CMS Manual System Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) Pub State Operations Provider Certification Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS); Transmittal 5 Date: November 19, 2004
20 F314 - Clean vs Sterile Technique Present literature suggests that pressure ulcer dressing protocols may use clean technique rather than sterileAppropriate sterile technique may be needed for those wounds that recently have been surgically debrided or repairedCMS-F-314 guidelines go so far as to discuss Clean vs Sterile Techniques when doing dressing changes and performing other treatment interventions such as debridement.WOCN position statement on this is available…-The guidelines state:- “Present literature suggests that pressure ulcer dressing protocols may use clean technique rather than sterile, but that appropriate sterile technique may be needed for those wounds that recently have been surgically debrided or repaired.”-Be aware…the surveyor will probably want to see you perform a dressing change on a resident. It would be in the interest of your facility if you had a dressing change protocol spelling out how dressing changes will be performed by your treatment nurse or others performing this task.
21 D.I.M.E. Principles of Wound Bed Preparation Debride Non- viable or deficientInfection or inflammationEdge of wound non advancing or underminedMoisture imbalanceNon-viable tissue-defective matrix & cell debrisHigh bacterial counts or prolonged inflammationDesiccation or excess fluidNon-migrating keratinocytes Non-responsive wound cellsImpairmentDressingsCompressionInterventionAntimicrobialsBiological agents Adjunct TherapiesDebridementDebridement-F-314 discusses debridement as a treatment intervention for PrUs and other types of wounds.-There are 3 things I’ve personally found to be inadequately performed related to wound care in the LTC setting.-Now…this is my personal experience…yours will probably differ…so recognize that the next statements are what is affectionately known by people I’ve been honored to teach…as Jo Opinions.Frequently I’ve seen mistakes in diagnosis of the wound…calling an arterial wound a venous or pressure ulcerInappropriate dressing choices based on the wound bed condition and exudate characteristicsInadequate or inappropriate debridement of the wound bed…-Before a clinician can choose the correct intervention the diagnosis must be right on…or it is simply luck and not skill that the wound heals…the resident’s body was able to heal or improve the wound in spite of the interventions performed…not because of them.-The International Advisory Panel on Wound Bed Preparation offered the TIME principles for wound management which is an excellent tool for recognizing and managing the barriers to healing.-This model addresses proposed pathophysiology, clinical actions of the DIME principles and the effect of that action on the wound.-Debridement may be episodic or continuous to remove the non-viable tissue and cellular debris…as cells die they leave they remnants in the wound bed…-In addition sharp and mechanical debridement are the only way to remove biofilm accumulation from the wound bed.-Infection or inflammation may be addressed with topical or systemic antimicrobial/anti-inflammatory agents.-Moisture balance can be achieved by either adding moisture to a dry wound with a dressing such as a hydrogel. -Absorptive dressing may the appropriate choice for wounds with moderate to large amounts of exudate.-Compression therapy may reduce chronic wound fluid associated with edema among residents with venous insufficiency.-For the non-advancing wound edge, interventions include addressing the cause and implementing corrective measures: biological agents, skin grafts, debridement and/or adjunct therapies.-What you are trying to achieve is to restart or facilitate the keratinocyte migrationLow bacterial counts & controlled inflammationRestore cell migrationAvoid macerationStimulate keratinocyte migrationOutcomesRestore wound base & ECM proteins

26 NPUAP: February 2007“The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel has redefined the definition of a pressure ulcer and the stages of pressure ulcersSuspected DTIStage IStage IIStage IIIStage IVUnstageable-In February 2007 The “The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel redefined the definition of a pressure ulcer and the stages of pressure ulcers, including the original 4 stages and adding 2 stages on deep tissue injury and unstageable pressure ulcers.”-We reviewed this information last month-When choosing your interventions it is important that you are aware of the depth of the wound…for instance…stage I and II pressure ulcers are partial thickness wound and will not have necrotic tissue in the wound bed…anytime…and I repeat anytime…you see slough or eschar in a wound you have a full-thickness wound.-Stage III and IV wounds are full-thickness wounds and will need careful attention to detail by a skilled wound care clinician to get the best and fastest outcomes leading for infection prevention and wound closure.-Please realize that full thickness wound only heal to 80% of their previous tensile strength.-AND…when you have a new wound in an old full-thickness wound the second wound only heals to 80% of the previous tensile strength from the previous wound…-Can you see where this is leading…-Each time a resident has a full-thickness wound in the same location of a previous wound the scar tissue is much more fragile…putting them at higher risk for another wound in the same location.-Also…we don’t heal wounds…we facilitate wound closure…-Wound healing continues for up to at least 2 years after closure with collagen remodeling and strengthening of the scar tissue.-So I never say I healed the wound…my interventions helped close the wound…ultimately the resident body heals itself…you are simply a facilitator…-Some wound closure facilitators are better than others…what can I say.-So....You MUST be able to correctly recognize the NPUAP definitions AND apply appropriate treatment interventions depending on the characteristics of the wound and the residents overall medical condition2626
27 Dressing and Treatment Caveats Thomas, JAMDA Oct 2006 Stage III, IV ulcers should be coveredDetermination of the need for a dressing for a Stage I, II ulcer is based upon individual practitioner’s clinical judgment and facility protocols based upon current clinical standards of practiceCurrent literature does not indicate significant advantages of any single specific productCurrent literature suggests that PrU dressing protocols may use clean technique rather than sterileAppropriate sterile technique may be needed for those wounds that have recently been surgically debrided or repaired27
28 Debridement Caveats Thomas, JAMDA Oct 2006 Variety of methods availableMechanical, sharp, surgical, enzymatic, autolyticMust be appropriate for the resident and clinical wound presentationStable, dry, intact, and adherent eschar on the foot/heal should not be debrided unless signs/symptoms of local infection or instabilityWet-to-dry dressings (a form of debridement) or irrigations may be appropriate in limited circumstances, but repeated use may damage healthy granulation tissue and may lead to excessive bleeding and increased painA facility should be able to show that its treatment protocols are based upon current standards of practice and are in accord with the facility’s policies and procedures as developed with the medical director’s review and approval28
29 Resident Right’s of Refusal: Resident Choice Resident has the right to refuse therapy or to be non-compliantFacility is expected to address the resident’s concernsA violation of resident rights is referenced in F154 & F155Offer relevant alternativesMere refusal or noncooperation is not an excuse forworsening of a pressure ulcerIn general, the documentation should include the resident’s right to refuse therapyInformed refusal should be documentedAlternative treatment/s should be discussed with the residentResident Choice-The right of a resident to refuse therapy or to be noncompliant with therapy is addressed in the new guidelines.-The facility is expected to address the resident’s concerns and offer relevant alternatives, if the resident has refused specific treatments.-A violation of resident rights is referenced in F154 and F155.Mere refusal or noncooperation is not an excuse for worsening of a pressure ulcer. In general, the documentation should include the resident’s right to refuse therapy-However, informed refusal should be documented-And alternative treatment should be discussed with the resident-And documentation of the recommended alternatives
30 Treatment Pearls for DTI Purple or maroon localized area of discolored intact skin or blood-filled blister due to damage of underlying soft tissue from pressure and/or shear. The area may be preceded by tissue that is painful, firm, mushy, boggy, warmer or cooler as compared to adjacent tissue.DTI may be difficult to detect in individuals with dark skin tones. Evolution may include a thin blister over a dark wound bed. The wound may further evolve and become covered by thin eschar. Evolution may be rapid exposing additional layers of tissue even with optimal treatment.
31 Deep Tissue Injury (DTI) Tissue injury that appears as dark discoloration, deep bruising, hematomaBorders are irregular and not well demarcatedTypically acute formationLong OR timesFallsSplintsSingle episode of pressureDamage to deeper structures has already occurredSkin may still be intact because of its higher resistance to hypoxiaHeralding sign of an impending stage III or IV
32 Progression of DTI Eschar formation – common at heels Necrosis and formation of full thickness woundInfection and abscess formation – usually requires surgical interventionDTI have potential for rapid deteriorationDTI may take time to “declare” itself.Heels intact and dry protectHeels moist and draining tx aggressively as appropriate for the pt
33 DTI ProgressionFirst identified in January…resolved in June of the same year. Typical location and progression of DTI. Heels are difficult areas to manage!
34 Management / Treatment Complete and immediate pressure reliefNo massage to affected areaProtect from other factorsi.e., incontinence, friction, shearMay use dry dressing if desired but no topical until “declared”Monitor closely for deteriorationNutritional support
35 What is different? Recommendation: When a suspected DTI presents with intact skin (before the eschar forms and demarcates) it should be considered a Stage I for coding on the MDS This is usually evident upon the initial presentation of the suspected DTI and/or within the first few days.Over the course of several days, suspected DTI evolve. Once the eschar matures/develops/forms/demarcates OR if the suspected DTI presents as an intact blood blister, then these lesions should be considered “Unstageable” and coded as a Stage IV for MDS 2.0 purposes only.Surveyors are being taught that you MUST stage INTACT SKIN as MDS M1 (which is a pressure ulcer) and should be coded as a Stage I pressure UlcerUntil the MDS is revised, it is best to follow the MDS guidelines and in the wound documentation section, describe in greater detail what you see.
36 The Bacterial Burden Infection Contamination Colonization Critical ColonizationLocal|SystemicContamination: the presence of bacteria at a wound site without multiplicationColonization: the presence and multiplication of bacteria at a wound site without s/s of infectionCritical Colonization: bacteria that multiply to cause a delay in healing often with increased pain but not an acute host reactionInfection: the deposition and multiplication of bacteria in the tissue causing a host reaction. Host reaction = tissue injury (invasion of bacteria into viable tissue).Chronic wounds have a predisposition for colonization.Biofilm: complex aggregation of microorganisms marked by the excretion of a protective and adhesive matrix.Infection

38 Secondary Signs/Symptoms of Infection Critically colonizedBacterial burdenLocal wound infectionDelayed healingChange is wound bed colorFriable granulation tissueAbsent/abnormal granulation tissueAbnormal colorSerous drainagePain at wound siteFrom: Vazquez J, Keast D. Contemporary Issues in Wound Infection: Managing Risks, Treating the Problem. Wounds. November 2006 Supplement.*Friable granulation tissue…In a chronic nonhealing wound, the prolonged inflammatory state interferes with normal healing; the new matrix is broken down by inflammatory products as quickly as it is constructed. This can make the granulation tissue produced, defective.For example: a high bacterial burden triggers the release of excess vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) producing excessive but abnormally weak vascular endothelial buds. The subsequent granulation tissue can easily be digested by the MMPs and it appears very friable.
39 Wound Culture When is it appropriate? If resident exhibits signs and symptoms of infection obtain cultureWhen wound extends to bone or fails to heal, assess for signs of osteomyelitisGrayson et al, demonstrated that a simple clinical test of probing to bone was predictive of osteomyelitis with a sensitivity of 66%, specificity of 85%, positive predictive value of 89%, and negative predictive value of 56%.Tissue biopsy provides most definitive quantitative analysis about the wound and organisms.Guidelines for the treatment of pressure ulcersWound Rep Reg (2006) by the Wound Healing SocietyWhitney et al.Infection3.1 Treat distant infections (urinary tract, cardiac valves, and cranial sinuses) with appropriate antibiotics in pressure-ulcer-prone residents or residents with established ulcers.3.2 Remove all necrotic or devitalized tissue by sharp, enzymatic, biological, mechanical or autolytic debridement.3.3 If there is suspected infection in a debrided ulcer or if contraction and epithelialization from the margin are not progressing within two weeks of debridement and relief of pressure, determine the type and level of infection in the debrided ulcer by tissue biopsy or by a validated quantitative swab technique.3.4 For ulcers with ≥ 1,000,000, CFU/gram of tissue or any tissue level of beta hemolytic streptococci following adequate debridement, decrease the bacterial level with a topical antimicrobial. Once in bacterial balance, discontinue the use of topical antimicrobial to minimize any possible cytotoxic effects due to the antimicrobial agent or bacterial resistance to the agent.3.5 Obtain bacterial balance <100,000, CFU/ gram of tissue and no beta hemolytic streptococci in the pressure ulcer before attempting surgical closure by skin graft, direct wound approximation, pedicle, or free flap3.6 Obtain a bone biopsy for culture and histology in cases of suspected osteomyelitis associated with a pressure ulcer.3.7 Once confirmed, osteomyelitis underlying a pressure ulcer should be adequately debrided and covered with a flap containing muscle or fascia. Antibiotics, guided by culture results, should be used for 3 weeks.
40 Wound Culture Proper technique Always clean the wound first Levine techniqueReplace swab in medium (send to lab)Recommend calcium alginate or rayon culture, as these are biodegradable, in lieu of cotton tipLevin technique- rotating swab culture over a 1 cm2 area of wound with sufficient pressure to extract fluid from within the wound tissue.Moisture with saline first…Cotton fibers can remain behind and cause a granuloma within the wound bed- body rejects foreign object, pearl analogy- wet swab first with saline unless using calcium alginate swabSwab the wound, not the goop or escharNote: biopsy is the most definitive method of quantifying bacteria
41 Antimicrobial Therapy Adapted from Sibbald et al 2001 Critical ColonizationIncreasing wound sizeIncreasing exudateFriability, bright redIncreased odorDeep Tissue InfectionErythema, edema > 2 cmProbes to bonePainTendernessNew areas of breakdownTopical(Immunocompromised pt mayRequire systemic)Systemic+/- TopicalDr Sibbald redefined this in 2006…NERDS and STONES.The most important vectors of infection are the hands of healthcare providers. Use of gloves and hand washing!!!Research suggests that topical antibiotic therapy be limited to two weeks. (Baranoski S, Ayello E. Wound Care Essentials. LWW, 2003.)
42 Antimicrobial Therapy Systemic antibiotics are not required for PrUs with only clinical signs of local infection.A period of 2 weeks is a reasonable trial with topical agents before considering systemic treatments or re-examining the treatment of the cause/ability of the ulcer to heal.
43 Preparing the Wound Bed Adapted from Sibbald RG et al 2006 Resident with a WoundTreat the CauseLocal Wound CareResident-Centered CarePersistent Inflammation orInfectionMoisture BalanceDebridementWound bed prep- 3 key components:Identify and ameliorate underlying cause of woundAddress resident-centered concerns. Cultural sensitivities, wishes, desires, pain, and psychosocial aspects. If not taken into consideration, pt not likely to comply with POC.Local wound care has 3 major components:Removal of nonviable tissue (debridement: sharp, mechanical, surgical, chemical, autolytic, biological)Manage inflammation and infectionAppropriate dressing selection to maintain moisture balance at wound bed (PASTA ANALOGY)If all components are in place and the wound is not closing/responding, an edge effect (failure of epithelial cells to migrate across granulation tissue) may be the cause, and biological agents, skin grafts or substitutes, and adjunctive therapies should be considered.Edge of the Wound
44 Wound Care ProductsThe first recorded use of an occlusive wound dressing 1615 BC.Wounds were left open to the air to form a scab until Winter advocated the concept of moist wound healing in 1962, based of a pig model.In 1963, in a human experiment, Hinman and Maibach showed that occlusive dressings accelerate healing.
45 Wound Care Products Over 6000+ products available Consider the following:wound related factors (etiology, severity, environment, size, anatomic location, infection)resident related factors (vascular status, medications, nutritional status)dressing related factors (availability, durability, characteristics, “cost”)
46 Dressing Considerations What do you need the dressing to do?Create or maintain moist wound bedProvide for non traumatic removalCreate a bacterial barrierProtect healthy cellsConsiderUlcer locationCost and frequency of changeIs the dressing user-friendly
47 Dressing Considerations Adapted from: Baranoski, 1999. Minimize trauma to wound bedEliminate dead spaceAssess and manage exudateSupport the body’s tissue defense systemUse non-toxic wound cleansersRemove infection, debris, necrotic tissueEnvironment maintenance- thermal insulation and moist wound bedSurrounding tissue- protect from injury and bacteriaMinimize trauma esp. with dressing removalLightly pack dead space, undermining and tunneling. If too tight, it can create hypoxia/ischemia.Best wound cleanser is saline and body temperature.

51 A Few Words About Gauze… Moisture retentive dressings vs. GauzeStudies have demonstrated that bacteria can pass through SIXTY-FOUR layers of dry gauzeThe infection rate with gauze dressings was 3X higher than with moisture retentive dressingsGauze dressings will NOT prevent bacterial contaminationThink about a wound’s location….other methods for bacterial contamination?Gauze dressing changes released greatest bacteria in colonized woundsDecline of airborne bacteria, almost 30 minutesRemoval of moisture retentive… almost no bacteria releasedBacteria is necessary for wound healing, but can be deleterious to healing if colonization occurs. Attention must be paid to the bacterial burden of a wound.An invitro study by Lawrence in 1994, showed bacteria was able to penetrate 64 layers of dry gauze. . Moistened gauze demonstrated even less of a barrier to bacterial penetration.Studies have shown that wounds dressed with gauze are more susceptible to infection vs. semi occlusive dressings.Important NOT to let bacterial levels reach the point where bacteria begin to invade tissues (infection). Colonization (the attachment of bacteria to wound surface) in high enough #s of bacteria can impede wound healing.Study by Lawrence in 1992.Most chronic wounds have polymicrobial colonization Brook 1998, Bowler possibilities for cross infection are high.
52 Dressings & Thermoregulation Normothermia37˚C is optimal for cellular functioningHypothermiacauses vasoconstrictiondecreases cellular activitydecreases collagen depositionweakens host resistance to wound infectionMost chronic wounds are hypothermicNormothermia- new in the last 10 years…Most wounds are hypothermic… 5.6 degrees below core body temp.Decreased cellular activity- particularly neutrophils
53 Dressings & Thermoregulation Semi-occlusive dressings = 33-35˚CGauze dressings = 25-27˚C4-6 hours for metabolic function to return to ‘optimal levels’ after each dressing changeWith dressing changes, wound bed temperatures have been measured at 21 degrees CWith TID dressings (with gauze), temperature is decreased for hours of the day
54 Real Cost of Wound Care The price of the dressing The labor cost of changing the dressingAncillary supplies and services used in changing the dressingCost of the duration of careWe must not confuse the price of a dressing with the cost of care!!!The simple act of the labor assoc. with a dressing change can make advanced dressings less costly.Liza Ovington, in her article Hanging Wet to Dry Out to Dry… provided a number of references on cost…“Several studies have been done to establish that advanced wound dressings can be cost-effective simply by taking into account the cost of labor. A more expensive dressing that requires less frequent dressing changes and results in shorter healing times has been found to be much less expensive to use.Colwell et al demonstrated that even when the cost of the semiocclusive dressing and ancillary supplies was $6.15 per dressing change versus $0.47 for wet-to-moist gauze, the daily cost of care for the semiocclusive dressing was only $3.55 versus $12.26 for the gauze because the former required less frequent changes than the latter.Xakellis and Chrischilles showed that while the materials cost of a semiocclusive dressing was more than 3 times higher than saline gauze, the nursing time required for use was one-eighth that of the saline gauze. The cost in use of the semiocclusive dressing according to national nursing wages at the time was $15.90 versus $25.31 for the gauze dressing.Bolton proposed that a true, total cost of care should include yet another variable: the quality of the healing outcome in terms of clinical effect. Adding this variable underscores the idea that an inexpensive product is not really inexpensive if it does not produce the desired results (i.e., timely healing and improved quality of life for the resident).These researchers found moisture-retentive dressings actually decrease the costs of care relative to gauze, primarily through their impact on clinician labor, but also as a consequence of improved healing. Add to this the implications for decreased costs related to a lower incidence of infections and pain and semiocclusive dressings are a more logical alternative than ever before. “
