Among the challenges confronted by post-acute care facilities, agencies, staff and providers, a breach in the integrity of the skin poses one of the highest potentials for regulatory censure, medical malpractice losses, and punitive damages under "dependent adult abuse" personal liability claims. To meet the need for comprehensive education regarding risk management for wound and skin breakdown in long-term care, Dr. Schechter has developed a 2 day seminar to provide greater familiarity with all wound etiologies, focus specific attention upon high risk conditions and associated breaches in the skin.
