Community Nursing Teams – Celebrate your fabulous work by evidencing when you have healed a wound

When a wound has healed, we are asking for one final wound assessment to be completed to complete the care plan.

When you are ending a care plan because the wound has fully healed:

  1. Open the care plan
  2. Enter ‘0’ in all wound measurements
  3. Complete all mandatory fields with appropriate information
  4. On tab 4, mark wound healed as shown above
  5. Then end care plan

This information is reported on a bi-monthly basis and is monitored by the board.

Please celebrate the fantastic work we do by evidencing how many wounds we truly heal in DCHS.
