Hospital-acquired pressure injuries are under-reported

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V05190290

This review summarises the knowledge of hospital-acquired pressure injuries (PI), which are underestimated and very painful adverse events giving an increased risk of infections and scarring and may lead to the need for reconstructive surgery. The majority of PI in the paediatric population are medical device-related, and according to international studies it is possible to reduce the extent through a systematic intervention. The staff must have knowledge and focus on principles for the prevention of PI, and a systematic risk assessment supplemented with the implementation of “bundles” is recommended to reduce PI among children.
