The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Skin Check mobile application (app) allows members of VA care teams to complete skin assessment documentation. With the app, the VA health care team (including providers and nurses) can conduct a skin check, assess risk for pressure ulcers (PU), choose the proper preventive measures and add information into their patients’ medical records. The app is designed to be a single, easy-to-access location for finding information about skin care and to help VA clinical staff comply with the Veterans Health Administration’s (VHA) Pressure Ulcer Prevention Handbook 1180.02. NOTE: While this app enables you to document a patients’ risk for skin breakdown and care related to skin conditions (e.g., bruises, rashes), it does NOT allow you to assess wounds. Should a Veteran have a wound, it must be assessed elsewhere.
