The SSKIN bundle is designed as a resource pack to aid in the assessment and care planning for people at risk of pressure ulcers. It is meant for use across all areas of care in the community and will be instigated where a patient is deemed at risk of pressure ulcers as indicated by use of an assessment tool or by clinical judgement.
The object of the SSKIN bundle is to prompt consideration of all the health factors involved in maintaining skin integrity when planning care for a patient at risk of pressure damage (skin, surface, keep moving, incontinence, nutrition and hydration). The aim of the plan should be to avoid pressure injury occurring at all, and where it does, to identify problems early in order to prevent deterioration and promote healing.
