Waterlow Pressure Area Risk Assessment

The Waterkow Risk Assessment Score Card: 
"One side illustrates the risk assessment scoring system click here. The reverse side provides guidance on nursing care, types of preventative aids associated with the three levels of risk status, wound assessment and dressings click here."

"Intended for use by nurses, healthcare professionals and carers at the patient/client interface. It must be remembered that "Waterlow", like all risk assessment scoring systems is a simplistic tool. Professional judgement must be used in determining the risk status of the patient/client. All assessments and, just as importantly, reassessments must be documented and the plan of care adjusted as necessary."
