A pressure injury is a localized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure, or pressure in combination with friction and shear

What to remember

  • Encourage movement to the patient to allow good blood flow in the body especially the extremities
  • If patient is immobile or bed ridden - TURNING EVERY 2 HRS is the key to prevent pressure injury


Burn are injuries described by severe skin damage that causes the affected skin to die. This may be caused by fires or flames, hot liquids or steam, contact with a hot object or agent like grease or tar, chemical, or electricity. In evaluation a burn injury, 2 factors are considered: depth of burn area and size of burned area as measured by the percent total body surface area

  • COOL - Submerge small minor injuries (1st and 2nd degree) into clean cold tap water (do not use ice) for at least 10 mins
  • COVER - Cover the burn with sterile material to protect from infection (1st and 2nd degree) Use clean, dry dressing to cover the burn
  • CALL for emergency assistance or medical help Seek for further medical treatment

For extensive and deep burns: watch out for signs of shock. Keep the patient warm while being transferred to a hospital


Bullous pemphigoid is an auto immune disease in which the body's own immune system attacks the layer of the skin that leads to formation of fluid filled blisters commonly at the folds of the skin or at the lower extremities.

Important points to consider in taking care of a patient with bullous pemphigoid:

  1. FLARE-UP CAUSE. Bullous pemphigoid has an unknown cause or is idiopathic in nature. However, there could be some triggering factors that can affect the severity or flare-up in the patient's condition. It could be present in the environment, other medical condition or even current patient's medication.
  2. SKIN INTEGRITY PRESERVATION. Use of non-adherent dressings to avoid or prevent further damage on the patient's sensitive skin during wound care.
  3. INFECTION PREVENTION. Environment of the patient should be clean and safe from any possible source of infection as patients with bullous pemphigoid are treated with steroids that lowers the immune system function
  4. COLLABORATIVE WORK. To ensure proper treatment of the wounds of a patient with bullous pemphigoid, a strong collaboration between the patient's dermatologist, surgeon and wound care experts should be established for an effective and efficient treatment plan tailored for the need of the patient
