Skin Injury Risk Assessment and Prevention

A skin injury risk assessment and prevention (SIRAP) tool that has been programmed into an electronic health record (EHR). The tool aims to identify patients at risk for skin injury and provides nursing decision support for planning appropriate prevention interventions. The tool also exists in a ‘paper’ version, but the preferred method of implementation or use of the tool is within an EHR capable of providing clinical decision support.


APPLICATIONS:
-Designed to be more user friendly for the nurse using it at the bedside than is the case with other risk assessment tools
-Utilizes a streamlined approach of “at risk” or “not at risk” for the included categories of risk. Previous tools have 3 to 4 point scales with confusing definitions and applications
-Utilizes the EHR to guide the process for prevention interventions. Previous tools separate risk assessment and intervention planning in space and time—SIRAP brings them together
