Preventing Pressure Ulcer Sores
This work on pressure ulcers was developed in collaboration with the U.S. Dept of Veteran Affairs Veteran’s Health Administration, Kaiser Permanente, the SNOMED CT Nursing Working Group and the Clinical LOINC committee. The ballot was reviewed by U.S. national wound and nutrition experts. The goal of the ulcer risk model is to represent clinical information pertinent to assessment of pressure ulcer risk and risk management. It is intended to specify information requirements for the domain, not to constrain implementers to any specific logical pattern.
