Avoiding F686

Pressure injuries and their accompanying documentation are often among the most frequently cited survey deficiencies. Documentation that’s lacking or missing can result in citations under F686, or even lawsuits. In addition, since wound care is the subject of continual research, keeping current on best practices is vital.

During HCPro’s 60-minute program, Avoiding F686: Preventing, Treating, and Assessing Pressure Injuries Through Documentation, risk management specialist Beth Alford, RN, BSN will identify the steps that most facilities get wrong when it comes to documenting pressure injuries.
