Dressings in the Wound Care Guidelines must be recorded on the Wound Management record. They do not need to be prescribed on the Inpatient Prescription Chart and Administration record. This is because all of the dressings that are in the wound care guidelines are CE marked and as such are not medicines.However if a supply is needed on discharge they should be written on the discharge letter.
