Mani Sotoodeh, Zelalem H Gero, Wenhui Zhang, Vicki Stover Hertzberg, Joyce C Ho
2021 AMIA Annual Symposium Proceedings  
Hospital-acquired pressure ulcer injury (PUI) is a primary nursing quality metric, reflecting the caliber of nursing care within a hospital.  ...  Prior studies have used the Braden scale and structured data from the electronic health records to detect/predict PUI while the informative unstructured clinical notes have not been used.  ...  Introduction Pressure injury, the current terminology replacing pressure ulcer in 2016, 1 is a key indicator for patient safety and healthcare quality. 2, 3 Pressure ulcer or injury (PUI) is defined  ...
