According to the NHS Stop The Pressure research, 700,000 people in the UK are affected by pressure ulcers each year and between 80 to 95% of these cases are preventable using the recommended SSKIN bundle approach, which entails: Surface: ensuring patients have the right support, Skin inspection: early inspection can detect and prevent injuries, Keeping patients moving, Incontinence and moisture and Nutrition and hydration.
