Pressure ulcer/injury prevention: Assessing risk factors

from Wound Source

Pressure ulcers/injuries pose a major risk to patients by increasing morbidity and mortality and causing significant discomfort. They are also prevalent, particularly in long-term care facilities, where patient populations may be at higher risk of developing pressure injuries as a result of factors of age, immobility, and comorbidities. To reduce the incidence of pressure injuries effectively, nurses and other health care professionals should be aware of the risk factors and the means to evaluate patients. This will allow caregivers to take steps to prevent problems before they develop and treat them more effectively if they do. more
