2004 (English)In: Journal of Wound Care, ISSN 0969-0700, Vol. 13, no 7, 286-290 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Prevalence of pressure ulcers was higher than expected. Results relating to both prevalence of pressure ulcers (grade I excluded) and the preventive care given to patients at risk or with pressure ulcers accord with those of a larger Dutch study. Attention must focus on the appropriate risk-assessment skills, highlighting grade I as pressure damage, and the use of appropriate preventive strategies, based on the level of risk.
