National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel announces change in terminology; updates stages of pressure injury

from National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel

From May 4: The term "pressure injury" replaces "pressure ulcer" in the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel Pressure Injury Staging Systemaccording to the NPUAP. The change in terminology more accurately describes pressure injuries to both intact and ulcerated skin. In the previous staging system Stage 1 and Deep Tissue Injury described injured intact skin, while the other stages described open ulcers. This led to confusion because the definitions for each of the stages referred to the injuries as "pressure ulcers". more
