The Massachusetts Pressure Ulcer Collaborative (PUC) recently developed a Skin and Wound Handoff Tool that can be used across the continuum of care. The PUC was formed in 2010 by the Massachusetts Hospital Association (MHA), Massachusetts Senior Care Association, and the Home Care Alliance of Massachusetts to implement a statewide quality initiative to prevent pressure ulcers across the continuum of care through the promotion of best practice, education and improved communication.
The committee encourages all health care providers to pilot the form and to provide feedback to the committee. If you have any questions or comments please email Colleen Bayard.
