If a patient requires assistance to stand and pivot to a wheelchair are they considered bed bound and rated at 30% or chairbound and rated at 40%? I have a few patients that are two person asst to wheelchair and I'm not sure how to rate them.

I'm not sure what you mean by PPS but I know that when completing a Braden Scale for Predicting Pressure Ulcers under the "Activity" section even if the patient requires two assists to sit in a chair/wheelchair they would still be scored as "Chairbound" and if they are not able to even get out of bed to sit in a chair then they are "Bedbound". I found a helpful resources from the Braden Scale official site that helps when doing Pressure Ulcer prediction scoring.
