One of the first activities in preventing pressure ulcers is the early identification of individuals who are susceptible to developing them. If a person is identified as susceptible or 'at risk', it is the health care professional's duty to ensure that preventive measures are implemented. The earliest phases of pressure ulcer development may show no outward visible signs of damage. Therefore it is important that individuals' at risk* are given an immediate prevention plan.
