After the Fact: Use of a Multi-layered Hydrocellular Foam in the Prevention of Reinjuring Recently Resolved Pressure Ulcers

Abstract

Foam dressings have been shown to be efficacious in prevention of pressure injuries (PrI) when applied as part of a bundled comprehensive prevention program. This study is an evaluation of 20 patients with history of repeated reinjury at the PrI site in long term care settings which use a 30 day, 3 times daily application of moisture barrier creams or ointments after pressure injury resolution, instead received a multi-layered hydrocellular foam dressing* (MLHCFD) applied to the affected site for 30 days.
