Review of unit standard 28517

Review of unit standard 28517

Unit standard 28517, Recognise and report changes and risks for a person in a health or wellbeing setting, is proposed for revision in response to a coroners inquiry which recommended that people who provide support in a health or wellbeing setting should have knowledge of the risks of trapping, particularly in relation to the use of pressure-relieving mattresses.

  • A definition for trapping was added to the guidance information.
  • A performance criterion covering the risks associated with trapping was added to outcome 3.
