A Fact A Day – Wound Bed Preparation

July PA fact sheet cover

Wound bed preparation is a structured approach to wound care that emphasizes an optimal healing environment. The TIME model mnemonic − tissue management, infection or inflammation, moisture balance, and edge of wound − makes it easy for you to remember the steps in successful wound bed preparation.

With appropriate wound bed preparation, an awareness of the patient’s medical status, and the right choice of dressings, you can facilitate progression through the phases of wound healing from inflammation to proliferation.

This two-page fact sheet was created to support staff education on wound bed preparation and includes:

An overview of the TIME model of wound bed preparation
Facts about non-viable tissue removal, including debridement considerations
A brief overview of the role of antimicrobial therapy and dressings
Assessment and treatment of wound infection tips
A look at how exudate relates to wound depth
