1) When do I do a pre albumin level on a wound patient (upon admission, after wound won't heal???) Also how often should I do it after the initial one?
2) When should I do wound cultures? Do I need to do wound cultures on new patients with wounds, even though the wound does not seem infected? Should I do wound cultures on new pressure ulcers (stage 2 and above)...also when/how often after the initial culture should I repeat the culture?
