Patient selection: inpatient adult on an internal medicine ward, age > 40 with >= 2 chronic diseases on admission
(1) Barthel index, from 0 (totally dependent) to 100 (normal function)
(2) Exton-Smith score for pressure ulcer risk, from 5 to 20
value of X =
= 100 - (Barthel index)
value of Y =
= (20 - (Exton Smith score)) / 15 * 100
= (X + Y) / 2
• minimum score: 0 (best)
• maximum score: 100 (worst)
• An increase in the score is associated with increased mortality.
