VanGilder C, et al. | 2011

A clinician and patient place their hands on top of one another.

This study collected data on pressure ulcer prevalence and risk score, surface type, and other parameters from facility-performed IPUP surveys. Overall pressure ulcer prevalence in the acute care, LTAC, LTC, and rehab settings decreased in 2009-2010. Significant decreases in facility-acquired prevalence were found in all settings except rehab.
