The role of the Tissue Viability Nurse is to develop and maintain an efficient tissue viability service for patients/residents; families and the MDT to prevent potential tissue damage as well as advise on current wounds.
Nurses use Isla to request photos of skin tears and pressure wounds at the point of referral from patients, carers, or care homes.
Nurses, or their community nursing colleagues, additionally capture photos when they go out to patients to build up a library of images of a patient. This supports recurring issues, safeguarding, and monitoring recovery.
