I am fairly new RN in south texas and have questions regarding the OASIS assessment in the lesion part. Is an age spot considered a lesion and an old scar that has been there for years a lesion. I document it as part of the integumentary assessment, but I do not consider it a new lesion. Am I wrong, if so please direct me to where I can find the definition of this?
