Your duties: evaluate risk a factors, immobility, incontinence, etc. that lead to skin breakdown. Treat wounds per protocol or orders and evaluate effectiveness and other causative factors. Nursing care plan with interventions. Hall nurse:observe, administer medications, nsg interventions NOT wound related.
