Wound-care teams for preventing and treating pressure ulcers.

Moore ZEH, Webster J, Samuriwo R. The Cochrane database of systematic reviews. 2015:CD011011.

Pressure ulcers are considered a never event for hospitals. In this systematic review, researchers sought to examine the impact of wound care teams in preventing and treating pressure ulcers in any health care setting, but failed to find a single randomized controlled trial that met their predefined inclusion criteria. Although wound care teams are increasingly prevalent, this study found there is a lack of robust evidence to support their effect.
