PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to validate a 10-factor model of risk factors for hospital-acquired pressure injury (HAPI) risk in patients with vascular disease. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Medical reviews identified 800 patients from a 1063 admissions from a 1400 bed quarternary care hospital in the midwestern United States. DESIGN: Retrospective review of medical records. METHODS: Medical records of consecutive patients treated during an 18-month period on a medical-surgical vascular progressive care unit were reviewed...

PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to examine the attitudes of baccalaureate nursing students toward their role in pressure injury prevention (PIP) and describe how clinical experiences influence their attitudes. Understanding students' attitudes and experiences related to PIP may facilitate development of evidence-based interventions for PIP by nurses. DESIGN: Qualitative exploratory descriptive design. SETTING AND SUBJECTS: Participants were 16 senior nursing students enrolled in a prelicensure baccalaureate nursing program in an accredited school of nursing...

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multimodal program developed to decrease postoperative complications, improve patient safety and satisfaction, and promote early discharge. In the province of Ontario, Canada, a standardized approach to the care of adult patients undergoing elective colorectal surgery (including benign and malignant diseases) was adopted by 15 hospitals in March 2013. All colorectal surgery patients with or without an ostomy were included in the ERAS program targeting a length of stay of 3 days for colon surgery and 4 days for rectal surgery...

Ostomy skin barriers that incorporate a convexity feature have been available in the marketplace for decades, but limited resources are available to guide clinicians in selection and use of convex products. Given the widespread use of convexity, and the need to provide practical guidelines for appropriate use of pouching systems with convex features, an international consensus panel was convened to provide consensus-based guidance for this aspect of ostomy practice. Panelists were provided with a summary of relevant literature in advance of the meeting; these articles were used to generate and reach consensus on 26 statements during a 1-day meeting...

PURPOSE: Measurement of pressure injury (PI) prevalence allows benchmarking within and across facilities; the International Pressure Ulcer PrevalenceTM (IPUP) Survey includes a variety of care settings. The purpose of this study is to present 10 years of US prevalence and limited demographic data (2006-2015) by care setting. METHODS: Facilities volunteer to participate in the IPUP Survey. Internal clinical teams collect data during a predetermined 24-hour period that includes pressure injury prevalence, demographics, and other pertinent clinical information...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of periurethral cleaning with 10% povidone-iodine, 0.05% chlorhexidine gluconate, or sterile water in preventing catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTIs) prior to indwelling urinary catheter insertion in a pediatric intensive care unit. A secondary aim was to identify pathogens resulting in CAUTIs in this group. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: One hundred twenty-two patients cared for in a pediatric intensive care unit of a university hospital between September 2012 and December 2013 participated in the study...

BACKGROUND: The management of chronic (nonhealing) wounds with epibole is challenging and costly, especially when the problem is not promptly identified or the patient is intolerant to conventional treatments. CASE DESCRIPTION: We describe the use of a polymeric membrane dressing (PMD) in 3 patients with chronic (nonhealing) wounds and epibole who were unable to be treated with traditional interventions such as silver nitrate or sharp debridement. Patient 1 was a 51 year-old male with a right foot stasis ulcer with 60% fibrin/slough to the wound bed, patient 2 was a 58-year-old female with a stage 4 pressure injury of the left hip with undermining, and patient 3 was a 62-year-old female with a dehisced abdominal surgical wound...

PURPOSE: In a previous paper focusing on the common sense model (CSM) for ostomies in people with inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, and diverticular disease, we reported that (1) illness perceptions were directly related to illness status, and both illness perceptions and coping strategies (maladaptive coping) directly influenced anxiety and depression; (2) self-efficacy and emotion-focused coping style ameliorated depression but not anxiety; and (3) time since surgery was associated with improved health status, a reduction in negative illness perceptions, and increased emotional-focused coping...

Pressure injury (PI) prevention has become a key nursing priority that requires clear identification of visual cues representative of PI risk. There is generalized agreement that erythema and skin wetness and/or maceration should be routinely examined by the clinician as part of PI risk assessment. Such an assessment is largely qualitative, deeply reliant on the perception and interpretation of the clinician. Consequently, skin parameters may be misinterpreted, underestimated, or even missed completely. Objective techniques are needed to augment accurate assessment of erythema and skin wetness and/or maceration...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify the clinical characteristics of mixed arteriovenous leg ulcers (MLU) that differentiated them from venous leg ulcers (VLU). DESIGN: Secondary analysis of data from larger electronic database. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: The sample comprised 1007 persons with lower extremity ulcers. Two hundred sixty three individuals with MLU were compared to 744 individuals with VLU; their ankle brachial indices were 0...

Skin tears are traumatic wounds resulting from friction and shearing forces. Clinical practice strongly indicates that skin tears are a prevalent problem but their incidence is not well established in the literature. This systematic literature review identified and evaluated the available literature on the incidence and risk factors for skin tears in adults and the elderly. Inclusion criteria were epidemiological studies published in English, Spanish, or Portuguese languages from January 1990 through June 2014 and available in full text...

Medical adhesive-related skin injury (MARSI) is a comparatively new category of skin damage. Our current understanding of MARSI originates from an interdisciplinary consensus conference held in 2012 that generated and disseminated 25 statements pertaining to the assessment, prevention, and management of MARSI, along with gaps in research and knowledge related to this area. The 2012 MARSI Consensus Group also challenged each organization to refine the original statements to make them more relevant to their particular area of practice...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine perceived barriers to adaptation to life with a fecal ostomy based on the Health Belief Model and to reveal home care needs related to these perceptions. DESIGN: Phenomenological study. SUBJECTS AND SETTING: Twelve participants undergoing ileostomy or colostomy within 3 months of data collection participated in the study. The participants were recruited from Stomatherapy Outpatient Clinic of Dokuz Eylül University Hospital...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this article was to evaluate the accuracy of 2 physical activity monitors, monitors 1 and 2, for measuring weight-bearing activity in persons with prior diabetic foot ulcers. DESIGN: Cross-sectional design. INSTRUMENTS: Two recently developed monitors were used to differentiate anatomical postures such as lying, sitting, and standing upright. One monitor was designed to distinguish between duration of standing and walking and the other combines duration of standing and walking into 1 measure...
