The reliability of pressure sore risk-assessment tools.

Abstract

Regular use of a risk-assessment tool may help increase and maintain staff awareness of pressure sore risk. All staff need to be educated in the use of the selected tool, to ensure reliability between users. A tool's threshold score should not be presumed appropriate in all patient areas. Care should be taken when using these scores to allocate preventive resources.
