Thank you for this info. I would like to ask, as a staff nurse, and again our charting, ( I know you get a lot of questions about Braden scale and charting). "when doing skin check and discovering a tear in the gluteal cleft, would you chart it as a "simple wound"/skin tear, or you would rather chart stage 2, and show improvement? a dressing cannot usually be applied in that area, so beside good pericarp, and protective anti moisture cream, and of course turning, is there anything else we should do? Thank you.
