242 Days And Still Counting

Staff and patients in Ward 6 at Forth Valley Royal Hospital tucked into this splendid cake, as a reward for recording the most days free of ward-acquired pressure ulcers. At the end of September 2014 they had achieved 242 clear days. The cake was donated by 3M Healthcare and presented by Lorraine Wright, the Tissue Viability Lead Nurse, to Charge Nurse Catriona Addison and her team.

The event was part of the international Stop Pressure Ulcer Day and the Tissue Viability Team set up a stand in the restaurant at Forth Valley Royal Hospital. The day was judged a great success.
