Pressure Injury Survey Guide

Pressure Injury Survey Team Training



Review Training


Prior to each survey, team leaders and team members who have already received initial training should review:

  • Guidelines established by the organization for which the data are being collected
    • For NDNQI, team leaders and members should review NDNQI® Guidelines for Data Collection and Submission on Pressure Injuries
  • Skin assessment for pressure injuries
  • Pressure injury staging definitions and example pictures
  • Definitions of other wound types and skin injuries and differentiation

Acceptable inter-rater reliability of pressure injury identification and staging should be established at least annually.
