Abstract

ABSTRACT: In this study, the construct validity of the moisture subscale of the Braden Scale for Predicting Pressure Sore Risk is partially supported by the significant inverse relationships between moisture subscale scores, the number of wet observations and soiled observations, brief changes, and differences among the moisture subscale score groups.
