- Jun 26, '06 by TweetyYou might have heard of the "Braden Scale". http://www.vnaa.org/vnaa/GeneralCont...aden_scale.pdf
If not you can Google more information. It's becoming a standard way of predicting pressure ulcers. In our facility anyone with a Braden scale of 18 (it was 16 but raised to 18 to assure compliance) are automatically put on "skin care protocol", i.e. turning q2h, floating heels, etc.
