9 Pages, Grade: 98%


Abstract or Introduction

Pressure ulcers, caused by prolonged immobility, are increasing among hospital patients. They can cause patient discomfort and infection, may increase treatment time, length of hospital admission, medical bills, and can potentially cause death (AHRQ, 2009). Current guidelines recommended by the AHRQ aid nursing staff in pressure ulcer prevention; however, the combination of specialty skin products, silicone dressings, and a 4-hour turning schedule may prevent pressure ulcers entirely.
