2 Thoughts to “Developing a cost-effective pressure-ulcer prevention program in an acute-care setting”

  1. lynn burbidge

    Patient has stage 2 pressure ulcer – treating with turning and betadine and no barrier cream. Turning should it be every two hours and is the positioning only side to side? What about the bed surface? Is the air bed good?

    1. Tamera Brown

      Low air loss bed good, Waffle mattress effective as well. Turning every two should be for ALL patients. Not certain why the betadine for the pressure ulcer? We rarely use betadine anymore. Toxic to good/new tissue. We use a hydrocolloid dressing or foam dressing (ie. Mepilex) for stage II pressure ulcers. Hope this helps.
