Summary:
Abstract: The objective of the study was to determine whether the occurrence of pressure ulcer in acute care hospital increases the cost, length of stay and if it alters the discharge location. The mediatory effect of length of stay on cost controlled for pressure ulcer was evaluated. A retrospective secondary database analysis was performed on the data from 2006 National Inpatient Sample.

Abstract:

Abstract: The objective of the study was to determine whether the occurrence of pressure ulcer in acute care hospital increases the cost, length of stay and if it alters the discharge location. The mediatory effect of length of stay on cost controlled for pressure ulcer was evaluated. A retrospective secondary database analysis was performed on the data from 2006 National Inpatient Sample. The hospital length of stay, total charges and discharge location to skilled nursing facility between patients with and without pressure ulcer was statistically significant. Unexpectedly the results were opposite to those hypothesized, which may reflect improved effectiveness of the intervention and treatment strategies, or improved preparedness of health care providers or due to limitations in the data collected or the study design itself. Further clinical trials are warranted to get a clearer picture on the implications of pressure ulcer with special attention on prevention strategies and on hospital acquired pressure ulcers.
