2 Thoughts to “Preventing pressure ulcers starts on admission”

    There is much much more to pressure ulcer prevention planning: Factors I’ve found to be key include 1. staffing that takes into account the braden scale, 2. clear expectations and role depictions: who, how, when, what to do for the patient at risk 3. continuous auditing, feedback. 4. positive enforcement for positive outcomes, 5. negative consequences when appropriate.

      Thanks for your comment Bebe, you are correct, pressure ulcer prevention does require many interventions after the initial 24 hour assessment plan is in place.
