SOTO FERNANDEZ, Oscar  e  BARRIOS CASAS, Sara. CHARACTERIZATION OF HEALTH, DEPENDENCE, IMMOBILITY AND ULCER PRESSURE RISK IN PATIENTS ADMITTED TO HOME CARE PROGRAM. Cienc. enferm. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.3, pp.61-72. ISSN 0717-9553.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95532012000300007.

Caring people at home, is the challenge that primary care is facing. This quantitative, descriptive, correlational study aims to determine the socio-demographic profle, health, dependency, mobility and risk of pressure ulcers in 84 people admitted to the home Care program from Antonio Varas Family Health Center at Puerto Montt city. Katz index, staging of dismovilidad (ETADI), Braden-Bergstrom scale data collection; the classification of the National Group for the Study and Assessment in Pressure Ulcers and Chronic Wounds (GNEAUPP), were used for data collection. Results showed an average age of 68.3 years (SD 18.2 years), with 73.8% of seniors, 56% of women, (80% with basic schooling or less primary). 72% present severe dependence and 39% have paralysis or paraplegia, it as a cause cardiovascular event (23.8%) and accidents or violence (13.1%). Significant relationship (p <0.00) between dependence and presence of pressure ulcers, as well as the level of immobility and dependence between the level of immobility and the risk of pressure ulcer is set. The demographic and epidemiological changes predict an increase in the need for home care and the nurse will be the one who take a leading role in the care of these patients and their families.
