*Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This overlay will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement and action planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. The Waterlow score is a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgement). Informal assessment is considered to be of
greater importance and clinical value.
