Abstract

The Braden scale may be outdated in the critical care setting to prevent hospital acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs). Applying evidence from the literature on Braden subscales and using “Measure-vention” for quality improvement, a quality improvement project using Braden subscales implemented in a 30-bed ICU reduced HAPIs by 63.5 percent.
