The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel provides guidelines for a graphical report that shows the trend in wound healing called the PUSH: Pressure Ulcer Scale for Healing.
Fastcare automatically calculates the PUSH score and displays graphs for each patient and each wound when you tap the Trend Report on the Facility page.
Choose a date range for the entire facility and tap Show -- or choose to report on the wounds of one resident
Here is how PUSH is calculated:
Observe and measure the pressure ulcer. Categorize the ulcer with respect to surface area, exudate, and type of
wound tissue. Record a sub-score for each of these ulcer characteristics. Add the sub-scores to obtain the total
score. A comparison of total scores measured over time provides an indication of the improvement or deterioration
in pressure ulcer healing.
