  1. Hi! I’ve recently returned to wound care in a LTC facility. When the new npuap staging definitions were released, I was working in a different role. I’m having trouble with how tissue type should be documented for a stage 2. Clearly, this is a wound bed without slough, necrosis or granulation tissue. My question is should I describe as epithelial tissue even if it’s open and has drainage? After doing extensive research on my own I still can’t find an answer. Exposed dermis seems the most appropriate but the MDS doesn’t have a box for that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
