 Chat Details

 

Hosted by WeNurses using #WeNurses

This chat is guest hosted by @Wurkyticket @TVN_UHCW

The 21st November is STOP Pressure Ulcers Day - a global annual event in which industry, healthcare professionals, the  public and media come together to help raise awareness of pressure ulcers.  So ahead the big day #WeNurses is holding a tweetchat to explore pressure ulcers:

The European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel state "Pressure ulcers, also known as pressure injury, decubitus ulcers and bed sores, are very widespread adverse events in the hospital, especially among the most vulnerable patients, i.e. children, elderly and those hospitalized in intensive care units. Recent studies consider pressure ulcers as the greatest burden exerted by unnecessary patient harm: in England this burden is estimated over 13 thousand of Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs), which measures the total number of years lost due to specific diseases or harm." (EPUAP 2019


  

Pressure ulcers are and always have been high on the nursing agenda .. and rightly so:

  • Pressure ulcer cause patients long term pain and distress
  • Pressure ulcers can mean longer stays in hospital
  • 80 % - 95% of pressure ulcers are preventable
  • Treat pressure ulcers costs the NHS more that £3.8 million every day

STOP Pressure Ulcers Day #StopThePressure aims to get everyone talking about pressure ulcers ... so this #WeNurses tweetchat also aims to do just that:

  • What is a pressure ulcer? 
  • What is the impact of pressure ulcers, to patients, family, and the NHS as a whole? 
  • What are the key messages around pressure ulcer prevention for patients?
  • What are the key messages for nurses around pressure ulcer prevention? 
  • As a global nursing community what can we learn from other countries re pressure ulcer prevention? 
  • Ahead of November 21st - #StopThePressure day - what can each of us do to raise awareness of pressure ulcer prevention?

@Wurkyticket @WeNurses Possibly, as it's lack of blood supply to an area? I guess unless the supply is already poor, maybe it doesn't have to be too long? #WeNurses

@WeNurses I've seen mostly on bony prominence but also where devices have caused pressure such as O2 and catheter tubing #WeNurses

@AgencyNurse @PUNCadp @WeNurses Yes, a little pressure over a long period, a lot of pressure over a short period and deformation of the tissues plays a huge part too so not always just about tissue perfusion #StopThePressure #WeNurses #WeStNs #TVN2gether

@AgencyNurse A piece of research I recently saw suggested a patient with a pressure ulcer was likely to spend an extra 5-8 days in hospital as a result. And they are more often than not completely preventable #WeNurses
@TVN_UHCW
14 November 2019 20:19
@wendyjpitt61 @MarcelleTauber Yep thankfully that practice has long gone though principles not far from the science with protein in the egg and oxygen though it’s required systemically. The repositioning of a patient to deliver this treatment no doubt helped #wenurses

Up to 200,000 people developing a new pressure ulcer in 2017/18 (Guest et al 2017). Treating pressure ulcers costs the NHS more than £1.4 million #wenurses #stopthepressure
