Norton Plus Pressure Ulcer Scale

  1. 0 In Massachusetts, we have to use the Norton Plus Scale for pressure ulcer risk. Somewhere there are directions. I can't find a copy anywhere and I've looked on Google, medpass and a few other places.
    Does anyone have a copy of the directions to share? My nurses are having a hard time doing these correctly.

    I found it in the Tabers Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary, 21st Ed. Page 1891. Its a blue table on the top of the page.

    I am sorry i cannot scan it for you with an ipad.

    Maybe this will help you find it better.
