Abstract

Evidence appraisal of Wang, I, Walker, R, Gillespie, BM. Pressure injury prevention for surgery: results from a prospective, observational study in a tertiary hospital. Implementing pressure injury prevention in a perioperative setting. J Periop Nurs. 2018; 31( 3): 25‐ 28. Hospital‐acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) are pressure injuries (PIs) that develop in patients during the course of their hospitalization. Prevalence rates in acute care settings vary widely—from 3% to 18%—across different regions and countries. Patients with limited mobility are at the greatest risk; anesthetized patients also are at a particular risk because of their limited mobility. Indeed, HAPIs in perioperative patients continue to be problematic, with current prevalence rates ranging from 5.1% to 64.1%.
