Description Hospital acquired pressure injuries (formerly called pressure ulcers) are a serious problem among critical care patients. In the U.S., pressure injury risk and associated care planning have historically been determined using the Braden Scale total score. However, some institutions now use the Braden Scale subscale scores to focus pressure injury prevention efforts. The purpose of the current study is to determine whether risk represented by the subscale scores differs between older versus younger patients.
