Objective. This study examined the efficacy of bedside surgical debridement in a nursing home population. Materials and Methods. A retrospective chart review was performed of sacrum, sacrococcyx, coccyx, ischium, and trochanter (SSCIT) region pressure injuries in the Skilled Wound Care practice (Los Angeles, CA). The patient population was refined from 2128 to 227 patients visited 8 or more times during nursing home stays found to have 1 or more SSCIT pressure injuries. Of the 227 patients, there were approximately 319 individual SSCIT wounds, with an average of 1.4 SSCIT wounds per patient. Bedside surgical debridement was performed using a sharp excisional technique on 190 of 319 (59.5%) SSCIT wounds. Results. An analysis of the square surface area of the 190 debrided wound sites revealed a mean ulcer surface area of 20.76 cm2. Of those 190 wound sites, 138 (73%) had a reduction in square surface area, and 52 (27%) had no change or an increase in square surface area and were categorized as nonresponders. Of the wounds that did improve by a reduction in wound surface area, the average wound surface area reduction was 6.81 cm2 at 4 weeks (25%), 8.91 cm2 reduction at 8 weeks (33%), and 10.87 cm2 reduction at 12 weeks (40%). From the 190 wound sites, there were a total of 43 (23%) wounds that had a square surface area of 0 (reepithelialized), which has a healing rate of 23%. Conclusion. Traditional bedside debridement provides excellent results in reducing the square surface area for a majority of wounds. Whether used alone or as an adjunct to any treatment plan, the use of surgical sharp equipment aids in achieving good wound healing and advancing the rate of wound closure. Although wound healing requires many components, sharp debridement can effectively remove devitalized tissue and is a proven significant component to advancing wound closure.
