Nursing Effects of Medical Treatment Combination on Patients at High Risk of Developing Pressure Ulcers at Rural Homes

Abstract

Objective: To explore the nursing effects of medical treatment combination on patients at high risk of developing pressure ulcers at rural homes. Methods: From January 2018 to December 2018, 86 patients at high risk of developing pressure ulcers at rural homes who were in Wenjiang Hospital were randomly divided into a control group and an observed group. The control group received the routine publicity and education and visiting, while the observed group adopted the cooperative nursing model of medical treatment combination. Then compare the healing status and nursing satisfaction of the two groups. Results: Of the 43 patients with pressure ulcers in the observed group, 18 had been in the second stage of pressure ulcers and 16 had been healed; 14 had been in the third stage of pressure ulcers and 8 had been healed; 11 had been in the fourth stage of pressure ulcers and 5 had been healed. The nursing satisfaction of the patients in the observed group was 95.35%. Conclusion: Conducting medical treatment combination on patients at high risk of developing pressure ulcers at rural homes can effectively improve the patients’ and their families’ awareness of pressure ulcer nursing, standardize their nursing behaviour, help recover the patients themselves and promote the patients’ satisfaction.
