    Sarah Tate a 78 years old lady presents with a sloughy shallow wound on her lateral malleolus.
    On examination the wound measures 3cm x6cm, the surrounding skin is macerated with some erythemia present. It is exudating copious amounts of serous fluid.
    She sustained the wound eight weeks ago when she injured her leg on a supermarket trolley.
    She has been treating the wound herself applying dry gauze and has consulted you as it has become more painful. She would prefer to continue managing the wound herself.

    According to your knowledge of tissue viability and wound healing what you think the diagnosis and treatment plan for this lady will be ? please remember you have to use sustained compression bandaging technique.

    (please reply to this post as soon as possible)

    wound

    This sounds like an assignment question for an undergraduate essay. If it is, this is not the place to get help for your laziness and you have just embarrased your teachers by coming here with this sort of question.
