Splinting or backboarding a patient helps prevent additional injuries, but what impact does it have on the patient’s skin, and is there a way to help prevent skin breakdown on a patient who is on a backboard for an extended period of time? Connie Johnson, BSN, RN, WCC, LLE, DAPWC, Clinical Educator and Wound/Ostomy Nurse, UMCP Skin Integrity Team, will discuss how pressure ulcers occur, how to identify patients at risk, and the risk assessment tool (Braden Scale).
