Abstract

 

Nurses who recently visited our Web site answered this question: Do you routinely conduct a pressure ulcer admission assessment for all patients?

 

According to the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's 5 Million Lives Campaign, using a validated risk assessment tool is "essential for accurate, prompt identification of at-risk patients and timely implementation of prevention strategies."
