How serious they depend on the amount of damage to skin and tissue. A Pressure sore (or Bed-sore) is an injury to the skin and tissue under it, and caused usually by unrelieved Pressure, constant Pressure against the skin which reduces the blood supplies to that area and the affected tissue will be necroses.2 Aims and Objective: To assess the level of knowledge regarding use of Braden scale on Pressure sore among Staff Nurses. To assess the effectiveness of Structured Teaching Programme regarding use of Braden scale on Pressure sore among Staff Nurses.
