Pressure Ulcer Stage


What this means:
The total number of patients that have nosocomial (hospital-acquired) stage II or greater pressure ulcers on the day of the prevalence study. A pressure ulcer is a localized injury to the skin and/or underlying tissue usually over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure in combination with shear and/or friction. A less-specific, general term for pressure ulcers is bed sores.

Nosocomial pressure ulcer stage 2 or above rate = # of patients with a facility acquired pressure ulcer stage 2 or above / # of patients assessed * 1000
