As this is my first post to this forum I hope first of all that I am not posting on a topic that has already been covered in a previous thread. If I am I apologize.
I am a first semester nursing student (RN) from TN. As we are about to complete our check off for wound care and documentation I am amazed at how far we have come in so short a time. At the same time I am amazed at how much I don't know, or better put, how much I still have to learn. My purpose of posting is to pose to you the question of wound documentation
. I understand the vocabulary associated with the things I may encounter during said dressing change, what seems to be giving me the most difficulty is documentation, in a narrative form, of what I have seen and assessed during the change.
If there is anyone who has some helpul information and maybe even some examples to provide I would be most grateful.
