ABSTRACT

Bedsores have been labeled as one of the most expensive and physically debilitating complications in the 20th century. After cancer and heart diseases bedsores/Pressure ulcers are the third most expensive disorder. The aim of the study was to assess the level of nurses’ knowledge and practice regarding bedsore prevention and care for hospitalized patients at National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics Rehabilitation (NITOR) Hospital at Dhaka, Bangladesh. The cross-sectional study was conducted purposively selected 18 senior staff nurses involved in caring of hospitalized patients form May, 2018 to June 2019. Data were collected face to face by using structured questionnaire and an observational checklist was also used to observe actual practice level. Collected data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics. The mean age of the respondents was 41 years. According to the study findings, nurses overall knowledge regarding bedsore was very good 66.6% and 33.4% was good. On the other hand nurses overall practice score was good was 72.2% but not very good. This is caused by insufficient training on prevention and care of paralysis patients, shortage of manpower and even nurses are involved with non-nursing practice. Bedside practice (nursing) should increase among nurses to prevent bedsore.

Keywords: Bedsore, Pressure ulcer, Paralysis, Knowledge, Practice.
