Pressure ulcers are considered to be a key quality indicator and healthcare providers in England are required to report local pressure ulcer rates. However, there is a lack of standardisation in reporting due to lack of national guidance. The Tissue Viability Society has sought to develop consensus amongst all concerned parties on the most useful and robust methods of data collection. This document has been developed following a consensus meeting and consultation with the majority of Tissue Viability Nurses across England and provides guidance on reporting pressure ulcer rates. It is intended for use all organisations that are involved in the reporting of pressure ulcers. It represents the consensus view of a large number of Tissue Viability Nurses from across England and we recommend its adoption.
