  • Patient Co-Morbidity and Functional Status Influence the Occurrence of Hospital Acquired Conditions More Strongly than Hospital Factors. [Journal Article]
  • JGJ Gastrointest Surg 2018 Sep 17
  • Moghadamyeghaneh Z, Stamos MJ, Stewart L
  • CONCLUSIONS: HAC incidence was highest among patients with severe comorbid conditions. While small, non-teaching, and for-profit hospitals had increased HAC, the strongest HAC risks were non-modifiable patient factors (preoperative loss function, diabetes, paraplegia, advanced age, etc.). This data questions the validity of using HAC as hospital performance measures, since hospitals caring for these complex patients would be unduly penalized. CMS should consider patient comorbidity as a crucial factor influencing HAC development.
  • Relationship between pressure ulcer risk based on Norton Scale and on the "Eating/Drinking" need assessment. [Journal Article]
  • JNJ Nurs Manag 2018 Sep 16
  • López M, Jiménez JM, … Castro MJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: A relationship was found between Norton Scale risk results and Eating/Drinking need assessment results. The greater the pressure ulcer risk, the more likely was inadequate need satisfaction (poor nutritional status).To help identify pressure ulcer risk, nurses should assess patients' eating independence. Safeguarding nutritional status and preventing pressure ulcers are nursing skills associated with quality nursing care.
  • Sciatic neuropathy caused by a pressure ulcer: A case report. [Journal Article]
  • MMedicine (Baltimore) 2018; 97(36):e12254
  • Hwang JH, Kim DW, … Lee SY
  • CONCLUSIONS: Physicians should be aware that sciatic neuropathy may occur during the treatment of patients with a pressure ulcer who exhibit no symptoms of paraplegia or quadriplegia. To prevent neuropathy, aggressive treatment of the pressure ulcer is necessary.
