The Braden and Braden Q pressure ulcer risk assessment scales are currently utilized at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital to identify patients who are at risk for developing pressure ulcers. During quarterly NDNQI surveys, over scoring of pediatric oncology patients by nursing staff has been documented. A pilot study was created to see if education plus a bundling element would increase effective scoring of the pressure ulcer risk assessment scoring system, increase staff understanding of pressure ulcer prevention, and create an overall decrease in the incidence of pressure ulcers on a hematology/oncology unit.
