Effect of modified Braden score on prevention of pressure ulcer in patients with femoral neck fracture

Xia Li, Qing Ji


Objective: To evaluate the effect of improved Braden rating scale in patients with total hip arthroplasty. Methods: Sixty patients with total hip arthroplasty were divided into observation group (n = 30) and control group (n = 30). Patients in the control group were evaluated by the Braden Score.The incidence of pressure ulcers and patient satisfaction were compared between the two groups. Results: By using the improved Braden score scale, the incidence of sore in the control group was significantly lower than that of patients. Conclusion: The improved Braden score can provide personalized nursing care for patients with femoral neck fracture and total hip arthroplasty, which can effectively eliminate the occurrence of pressure sore in high risk population.
