Predicting Pressure Ulcer Risk (Braden Scale)

This DVD shows how to administer and interpret the Braden Scale for predicting pressure sore risks in home, hospital, and long-term care environments. Encouraging a visual-and-touch skin assessment in conjunction with the Braden scale, it specifies what to look for, how to prevent pressure ulcers, and how to assist patients with maintaining skin integrity after discharge. Covers the 6 dimensions of the Braden Scale: sensory perception, moisture, activity, mobility, nutrition, and friction and shear. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
