The document "Photography in Wound Documentation" has been revised and updated and is now available! It is the position of the WOCN Society that photography, when used in wound care, serves as an adjunct to, not a replacement for, the written wound documentation. This document is not intended to be a policy, but rather a fact sheet for agencies/institutions formulating photography policies or guidelines. It outlines items and criteria that need to be included in order to be compliant with JCAHO, AHIMA, and HIPAA guidelines. It is timely, concise, and relevant!
