Implementing an adapted SSKIN bundle and visual aid in the community setting

21/03/16 | Service delivery | Siobhan McCoulough

The Hownslow Richmond Community Health NHS Trust (HRCH) has adapted a SSKIN bundle for use in the community. It incorporates visual prompts aimed at non-English speakers and instructions for wheelchair user instructions. It was launched in April 2015 alongside a dedicated HRCH webpage for carers and their patients. A multidisciplinary group led by the pressure ulcer (PU) clinical lead was set up in January 2015 and it is hoped that this collaboration will help make the community SSKIN bundle successful in reducing rates of PUs among patients being cared for at home.
