Abstract: Pressure ulcer is one of the most common complications for bed-ridden patients in hospital. This study was aimed to examine nurses’ knowledge, attitude, and practice regarding pressure ulcer prevention in Bangladesh and to examine the relationship between staff nurses’ knowledge, attitude, and practice. Subjects were recruited from one medical college hospital in Bangladesh. Ninety-one nurses working in pressure ulcer related units returned the questionnaires (84.26% response rate). Data were analyzed by using descriptive and Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient statistics. The findings showed that the level of nurses’ knowledge regarding pressure ulcer prevention was at very low (M = 57.79%, SD = 9.20%), the levels of attitude and practice were at moderate (M = 78.31%, SD = 6.61%, and M = 77.55%, SD = 11.00), respectively. The nurses’ attitude was positive and moderately correlated with their practice (r = .34, p <.01). However, knowledge was not correlated with their attitude (r = .14, p >.05) and practice (r = .14, p >.05) regarding pressure ulcer prevention. These findings suggest that nurses need to enhance their attitude and increase knowledge on pressure ulcer prevention in order to improve nursing practice in this area.
