Photography in Wound Documentation Fact Sheet

Photography is a common method used to document pressure ulcers. The use of photography for wound documentation is an organizational choice and not mandatory. However, if an organization chooses to use photography, care should be taken to ensure polices are in place for its use and staff are trained in the use of this type of documentation. The Fact Sheet, developed by the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society, outlines what processes should be in place at an organization that uses photography for documentation of pressure ulcers.
