|Go-To Logic:||Refer to Common Formats Flow Charts|
|Guide For Use:||
Select 'Stage/Category I' if the most advanced stage of the skin lesion being reported was intact skin with non-blanchable redness of a localized area usually over a bony prominence.
Select 'Stage/Category II' if the most advanced stage of the skin lesion being reported was partial-thickness tissue loss of dermis presenting as a shallow open ulcer with a red pink wound bed, without slough.
Select 'Stage/Category III' if the most advanced stage of the skin lesion being reported was full-thickness tissue loss. Subcutaneous fat may be visible, but bone, tendon or muscle are not exposed.
Select 'Stage/Category IV' if the most advanced stage of the skin lesion being reported was full-thickness tissue loss with exposed bone, tendon or muscle.
Select 'Unstageable (any type)' if the most advanced stage of the skin lesion being reported was full-thickness tissue loss in which the base of the ulcer is covered by slough and/or eschar in the wound bed.
