Pressure Sore Diagnosis



The primary method of pressure sore diagnosis is by visual examination and good practice is to carefully assess a patient’s risk of developing sores by assessing their:

  • Overall health
  • Mobility level (precisely how often and how far they move, how easily they can move)
  • Symptoms that point to a possible infection
  • Posture – is there anything that could affect the patient’s posture?
  • Mental health
  • Any history of pressure sores
  • Blood circulation
  • Urinary and/or faecal continence
  • Nutrition
