  1. Would you consider red, warm boggy heels a stage one IF they were blanchable?

    All clinical texts describes it to be non-blanchable.

    Keep observing, sounds like the beginning of a suspected deep tissue injury.

    Thanks for the replies. I received two different answers...One person said if it's blanchable, by definition it is not a stage 1, the other said that because they are boggy that we don't know how much damage is done and to code as a stage 1....ughhh
