There are many different types of wounds, including acute, chronic and surgical wounds. Patients need to be given the self-confidence and support to self-manage their wounds at home. They need to understand normal signs and symptoms from those that indicate a potential or actual infection, requiring medical attention. Stoplight tools help patients understand those early warning signs and what to do.

Stoplight tools divide various signs and symptoms into green, yellow, and red management zones. Green indicates good control, yellow indicates caution and gives specific steps for action, and red indicates a medical crisis that requires a physician’s attention or a call to 911.

This Wound Stoplight Tool is based on recommended standards of care for patients with wounds. It can be customized with your agency’s name and contact information. Available in English and Spanish. 50 sheets per pad
