This Zombie Notes Study Chart includes the most important basic information healthcare professionals must know and understand about turning a patient. It is proven that caretakers and healthcare workers need to move the patient into different positions to prevent skin breakdown from pressure and to promote circulation.
When a patient lies in one position for too long, the skin over bony areas begins to break down. This leads to difficult-to-heal wounds and infections. This study chart has instructions about turning a patient, and also includes a diagram showing which positions to move the patient into in order to avoid skin and circulation problems.
This Study Chart gives you the basic instructions that are the currently accepted standards for turning a patient. You must understand that your hospital’s policy on patient turning, and how it should be accomplished, should be the policy that you follow.
Although a lot of information is included in the two pages, it is easy to see, easy to read, and easy to follow. Many nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals have used this study chart.
This includes American military medical personnel. These charts were first developed by Michele and Joe in 1985. They have progressed to their current form, and are kept up-to-the-minute accurate.
