Traffic Light Prevention and Management of Pressure Damage Model
The Traffic Light Prevention and Management of Pressure Damage Model is a local risk assessment tool used within North East Lincolnshire for allied health care professionals.
The Traffic Light Model is based on three risk levels (Green – Low, Amber – High and Red – Very High). Risk levels are dependent on an individual’s risk factors. It also provides general advice on management, re-positioning regimes and skin checks to enable care staff to monitor individuals – promoting early identification of tissue damage with the aim of preventing pressure ulcer development.
