Train now on how to answer the OASIS wound items based on the new NPUAP pressure ulcer staging definitions so you’ll be ready for OASIS-C2.

In case you haven’t heard, the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) recently released noteworthy changes to wound definitions and stages, effective immediately. Among the changes, the term “pressure injury” will replace “pressure ulcer,” a clarification that pressure ulcers with slough or eschar are at least a Stage 3; and additional pressure ulcer definitions related to Medical Device Related Pressure Injury and Muscosal Membrane Pressure Injury.

CMS has not yet adopted these definitions—but experts believe they will with the implementation of OASIS-C2. Clinicians like yourself need to pay close attention to these definitions to ensure you’re completing the OASIS accurately. Case in point: mistakenly marking a stage 3 ulcer as a stage 2 results in a loss of clinical points and potentially $500 or so per episode. Bottom line—a repeat mistake will cost you.

Stay ahead of NPUAP wound guidance by attending this 90-minute webinar hosted by home health expert Ann Rambusch. You will:

  • Get trained on the new NPUAP staging guidelines, prevent understaging a wound and losing clinical points and appropriate reimbursement
  • Understand the financial impact of incorrect staging
  • Learn why pressure ulcers are now called pressure injuries
  • Understand the new pressure ulcer definitions for Medical Device Related Pressure Injury and Mucosal Membrane Pressure Injury, and how these wounds should be captured in the OASIS and when coding
  • Learn what type of documentation is needed to support new wound definitions and guidance


Remember, failure to comply with new guidance could cost agencies hundreds of dollars per episode so don’t get left behind!
