Pressure Ulcer Query
Good Morning All,
New CDI here looking for advice on how to set up a query for pressure ulcers with conflicting documentation.
While in the ER patient was seen for an ICU consult which noted: Chronic non stageable deep ulcer at right gluteal area, stage 2 ulcer at left gluteal area , has blisters in the lateral left thigh, superficial blisters in B/L scrotum
#1 Left Lateral thigh- unstageable 4.2cm x 3.7cm
#2 Left Lateral thigh - Partial thickness 2.1cm x 2.5cm
Sacrum- Partial thickness 4.0cm x 3.0cm
Right Ischium Full thickness 5.6 cm x 4.5cm x 4.0 cm
Right Anterior Thigh - unstageable 3.6cm x 2.4 cm
Scrotum - moisture associated dermatitis
The Floor RN's caring for the patient state the following POA: SDTI on Left upper back, Unstageable Proximal Ischium, Unstageable Midline Knee, Partial Thickness Medial Sacrum, Stage 2 Scrotum, Stage 2 left thigh.
The attending DR only AKA stump ulcers covered with duoderm
I am not sure how to set up this query. Would you just ask which do you agree with? ICU vs Woc RN or Other? or would you list each ulcer? How would you ask POA status in the same query since the Wound RN came 4 days later. Am I over thinking this?
Thank you for your help!
