  5. How many patients admitted with pressure ulcers form either care home or nursing home for period 01/04/12 to 01/04/13

 

Details of the Response

1. Total number of patients treated for pressure ulcers in your Trust For stage 2 pressure ulcers and above (N.B. these are number of pressure ulcers not patients):

  • Trust acquired: 133
  • Community acquired: 974

 

2. The number of grade 3 and grade 4 pressure ulcers? Trust acquired:

  • Stage 3 = 32
  • Stage 4 = 8

Please note: some of these may be double counts as the patient’s pressure ulcer may already have been reported as a stage 2 which then develops into a stage 3 or stage 4 and therefore this will be counted twice

 

3. How many patients with pressure ulcers present on admission.

01/04/13 – 01/04/14: Total is 748

 

4. How many patients admitted with pressure ulcers from either care home or nursing home

5. How many patients admitted with pressure ulcers form either care home or nursing home for period 01/04/12 to 01/04/13
