Abstract

Pressure ulcers (PU) are common on stroke patients with immobility. The best turning interval to prevent PUs development still unknown. The objective of this study was to compare the PUs incidence between stroke patients turned every 1 h and those turned every 2 h. This study used quasi experiment - post test with control group design, conducted between January – March 2018. Samples recruited within 1-3 days of admission in neurological ward in two hospital. The experimental group (n=26) was turned every 1 hour while the control group (n = 23) was done every 2 hours in the day (6 am – 6 pm) and every 3 hours in the night (6 pm – 6 am); using 30o tilt; continued for the next 5 days. All partisipants (n = 49) were 23 men and 26 women, aging 42-81 y/o. 6/26 patients (23.1%) in the experimental group and 6/23 patients (26.1%) in the control group developed PUs (p = 1.000; p > 0.05). All PUs were grade 1 (10.2%), grade 2 (12.2%), and DTI (2%). There was no statistically difference in PUs development over 5 days of turning between stroke patients those turned at 1 h or 2 h intervals.
