The LPZ project
The LPZ project is an international survey of pressure ulcers, restraint, falls, incontinence, malnutrition and intertigo (inflammation of adjacent areas of skin) in nursing homes and hospitals. It is a unique project into which the participating organisations pay to have the survey conducted on their premises and the annual information provides them with a useful ‘barometer’ of effectiveness in some essential aspects of the care people in nursing and residential homes and other care environments. For some low grades of pressure ulcer in The Netherlands, an annual reduction in prevalence has been observed.
