- Rate of Development of Unit-acquired Pressure Ulcers [ Time Frame: During MICU admission ]Total count of the number of patients who developed unit acquired pressure ulcers during the study (count)
- The Time to Develop the First Unit-acquired Pressure Ulcer [ Time Frame: Days from admission to HAPI ]The number of days spent in the intensive care unit prior to the development of a pressure ulcer
- Maximum Severity of Unit Acquired Pressure Injury (UAPI) [ Time Frame: During MICU admission ]HAPI staged by trained clinical nurses using the National Pressure Advisory Panel (NPUAP) staging definitions in which Stage 1 is the least severe with severity progressing through Stage 2, 3, 4, and unstageable. Unstageable is an evolving type of pressure injury evolving into a Stage 3 or 4.
