I am no wound nurse by any stretch of the imagination, but our protocol says to use a "colloid dressing". And the nursing home that I visit(I'm a Hospice nurse), hates any dressings on these, and pretty much refused to do that, so we ended up putting a cream BID and PRN. Patient is not incontinent, but is end stage COPD, ambulatory with a walker, and has a APP bed, and an egg crate pad in her wheel chair.
What do you recommend? Patient is stating that this is the number one source of pain right now.
