Here at WoundRounds, we provide our clients with sophisticated technology to improve the care of their patients and more effectively manage their operations. One of our essential technology components is the Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing, also known as the PUSH Tool.
The PUSH Tool was developed by the National Pressure Advisory Panel (NPUAP) in an effort to monitor changes in pressure ulcer status in a more timely and reliable manner.
Put simply, the PUSH Tool is a tracking tool that allows nurses and caretakers to calculate and monitor the rate of healing for each wound. When clinicians spot declines in the improvement of a wound, they are able to act rapidly.
If wounds aren’t improving, caretakers are alerted and are able to react quickly and efficiently, reducing the risk of liability. The PUSH Tool also saves time and eliminates paperwork, giving time back to the nurse, and allowing more time at the bedside with the patient. In addition, it is more accurate and simple to track than traditional paperwork, leading to fewer errors.
A user-friendly product, the PUSH Tool can be used by nurses, doctors and staff alike to easily track and monitor pressure ulcers. This simplification of monitoring and recording data leads to improved communication among staff.
To learn more about how the PUSH Tool can benefit your facility, we are offering a free one-hour webinar on June 28, 2012 at 12pmCST/1pmEST/10amPST. Click here for more information and to register:
