Pressure injury incidents

All pressure injuries must be notified in the local incident reporting and management system (i.e. NSW Health Incident Information Management System (IIMS) ) and reported to the appropriate medical team. This includes those pressure injuries present on admission, new pressure injuries, and those that have significantly deteriorated (progressed to the next stage of pressure injury) since admission.

Auditing and reporting resources

The NSW Health Pressure Injury Prevention and Management Policy (PD2014_007) recommends an annual point prevalence survey and regular reviews of available data. A monitoring and auditing framework has been developed and includes a document audit tool, patient equipment audit tool, a patient assessment tool, and other supporting documents.

It sets out the minimum essential elements of a pressure injury prevention and management monitoring and audit framework, linked to recommendations set out in the NSW Health Pressure Injury Prevention and Management policy.
