Assessing and grading pressure ulcers Pressure ulcers, commonly known as pressure sores (ulcers is the term preferred for European consensus) present an all too familiar problem to most nurses. Overall prevalence has been reported to be between 5 and 19 per cent ( Gerbhardt 1995 ). They can result in much pain and discomfort and greatly hinder the rehabilitation process following illness or injury. Nursing Standard 1987) 14(33): 57-58, 2000
