Percentage of Residents Whose Stage 2 to 4 Pressure Ulcer Worsened

Description This indicator looks at the number of long-term care residents whose stage 2 to 4 pressure ulcer had worsened since the previous assessment. Pressure ulcers can happen when a resident sits or lies in the same position for a long period of time. Immobility may be due to many physical and psychological factors, neurological diseases like Alzheimer's and improper nutrition or hydration. Careful monitoring is required to ensure good quality of care.
Interpretation Lower is better. It means that a lower percentage of residents had a stage 2 to 4 pressure ulcer that worsened.
