TORRA-BOU, Joan Enric et al. Pressure ulcers as a safety patient problem. Gerokomos [online]. 2016, vol.27, n.4, pp.161-167. ISSN 1134-928X.

Nowadays patient's safety is a priority for Healthcare Systems. Pressure Ulcers are an important health problem that produce harm in patients and are avoidable in a high percentage of cases. We review in the current paper conceptual and methodological issues related with pressure ulcers as a safety problem in patients, their impact between the different adverse events as well as different institutional approaches about pressure ulcers in the framework of the safety of patients and adverse events.

Keywords : pressure ulcers; safety of patients; adverse events.
