We have heard recently of incidents where things got missed on skin assessments on the unit (some very serious). I am soon to graduate and am just wondering how people go about doing a full skin assessment. I am good with checking the legs, feet, arms, upper chest, abdomen, and the back during my other parts of the assessment. The only problem I have is checking patient's groins/butts. I am wondering how you address this issue with patients. I want to maintain the patient's dignity but I also want to perform a thorough skin assessment and make sure nothing is missed.EDIT: Also another issue is under skin folds/breasts. How do you approach this patients?
