Study on effect of cluster-based care in reducing incidence rate of inevitable pressure sore

Purpose: The cluster-based caring measure was carried out for the patients with inevitable pressure sore to analyze its clinical effect on formation of pressure sore.

Method: 90 patients with inevitable pressure sores, who came to our hospital for treatment, were selected as the investigation objects and randomly divided into two groups, saying the control group and the observation group, with 45 patients in each group. Common pressure sore caring measures were carried out for the control group, while the cluster-based caring measures were done to intervene in the observation group on the above basis. Clinical caring effects of the patients in two groups were compared and analyzed.

Result: Compared with the control group, the incidence rate of pressure sore was lower in the patients of the observation group and the difference between two groups was of obvious significance (χ2=4.530, p=0.007). Compared with the control group, the mean time and satisfaction of pressure sore formation were better for the patients with inevitable pressure sores in the observation group and the difference between two groups was of obvious significance (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The application of the cluster-based caring in nursing of pressure sore of the elder patients was helpful to heal pressure sore, could effectively lower the incidence rate of pressure sore and was beneficial to improve the satisfaction with outstanding clinical effect, so that it should be worthily referenced in clinical activity.
