Description of the presentation in the nursing homes:
All our residents must have a pressure ulcer risk assessment at the admission to the Nursing Home or the Home Care Services. The Risk assessment we use is the validated Braden Scale.
You will have the possibility to get to know how we prevent pressure ulcers, by daily using data, improvement-boards, ongoing leadership focus and front line staff involvement. You will learn about it from front line staff and leaders who on daily basis work with improvements.
