How To Use E-Z Graph

The E-Z Graph® has been developed to provide healthcare professionals with a fast, easy, and accurate tool for assessing wounds of all kinds. All it takes is five E-Z steps.


The E-Z GRAPH® WOUND ASSESSMENT SYSTEM was designed by a certified wound, ostomy and continence nurse, with consultation from other health care professionals, to establish an easy-to-use standardized system for the assessment and documentation of all types of wounds.


The E-Z GRAPH® TRACING GRAPH offers a one-step process for fast and accurate assessments. Simply fill in the blanks and trace the wound. Then peel off and dispose of the soiled backing. The graph has an adhesive backing that adheres to the worksheet. Place the finished tracing on the accompanying worksheet to complete the documentation. No longer will you need to rely on excessive wording or depend on fuzzy snapshots to track wound progression.

Hints for Making the E-Z Graph Wound Assessment System Work For You

STOCK ENOUGH KITS FOR ALL YOUR UNITS

Easy access to the measuring devices ensures compliance with usage and encourages timely documentation. So make certain each unit, department, or floor has their own kit. 

ORGANIZE ALL ITEMS IN THE E-Z GRAPH BINDER

Include these four items in the case: E-Z Graph®, worksheets, markers, and sterile cotton-tipped applicators.  Store the binder in a pre-determined location for staff to have readily available. 

INSERVICE STAFF ON THE CORRECT TECHNIQUE FOR USING THE E-Z GRAPH® SYSTEM

Even though the system is relatively simple and almost self-explanatory, time spent initially instructing your staff on its proper use will provide greater consistency and accuracy in your documentation.
