Abstract [sv]

Background: Pressure ulcers are a common problem and cause great suffering for those who develop it, and are also an expensive cost to the society. Aim: To describe nursing measures for prevention of pressure ulcers among elderly people in ordinary and nursing homes. Method: A literature review by structured analyze of scientific articles. Result: The analyze resulted in six subjects for prevention of pressure ulcers. These subjects were; risk assesment, nutrition, repositioning, skin/hygiene, nurse knowledge and documentation. Conclusion: Repositioning more often did not prevent pressure ulcers better than repositioning less frequent, nursing staff should offer patient´s pads with high absorption for peaceful rest and documentation should be improved.
